Rahama Wright

Rahama Wright’s entrepreneurial journey spans bootstrapping to landing deals with Whole Foods Markets and MGM Resorts, and most recently Macy’s. Her company Shea Yeleen is a social impact company rooted in the financial empowerment of women in Ghanaian villages. After 15 years of operating an indie beauty brand, she is now creating the first indie beauty maker space to help early-stage brands scale and grow their brands. Like a shared kitchen space, the indie beauty maker space will provide access to equipment, technical resources, and an in-house team to remove common barriers to entry for small start-up beauty businesses. A former Peace Corps volunteer, her love for travel has taken her to 36 countries.
