Nicole Lamond Co-founder & CEO of Eloments and Universal Village International

Talking Business with Alan Kohler

Nicole combines her passion for life, enlightenment and fine food through running Universal Village, a fair trade food business that markets the Qi Tea and Eloments Vitamin Tea brands. Nicole has helped take fair trade products into the mainstream grocery stores. Nicole was a founding board member of the Fair-Trade Association and is currently the Secretary. She holds a Masters of Entrepreneurship and Innovation and has a passion for doing business with purpose. Eloments is the world’s first organic tea enriched with plant-based vitamins and minerals, designed to give consumers a natural and enjoyable way to take their daily vitamins. This small company - comprised of just Julie Hirsch and Nicole - is celebrating a recent big win with entry into the tea aisle in 75% of Woolworths supermarkets around Australia, making them one of the few female-owned companies to sit in the category. They are proud of their recent capital raising mission for Eloments, they were proud (and rightly so) to share they broke the $1million-raised mark. According to Forbes, only 2.2% of venture capital funding in 2018 went to female founders. Julie and Nicole hope to be part of the movement of female-led businesses around the world changing this norm.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
