Founder Series: Passion Meets Purpose

Jane Wurwand

This is part two of our story when classic entrepreneurship and a passion for skin care changed an industry forever. In Los Angeles, 1983, Jane and Raymond Wurwand saw a gap in skin therapy education and founded Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute; which are game-changing brands within the professional skin care industry. In this episode, Jane shares her advice to new entrepreneurs, the importance of developing a skill set, and “if you can see the greatest pain in an industry, you’ve just spotted the greatest opportunity.” Jane also takes us on the journey of how she established FITE (Financial Independence Through Entrepreneurship), a social impact initiative that helps women and girls on the path to entrepreneurship by providing access to education, vocational training, small loans and leadership skills.www.joinfite.org In 2016, President Obama appointed Jane a Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship, one of a prestigious group of America’s top entrepreneurs who work with the Federal Government to help develop the next generation of entrepreneurs both at home and abroad.
