Justin Guilbert
& Douglas Riboud
Founders
Harmless Harvest

Douglas and Justin, both 35 years old, met in New York in their college years and together began thinking about progressive business models during their MBA at INSEAD in France. In 2008, they both quit their jobs; at that time Douglas was a Vice President of M&A with Lazard Freres in NY, and Justin was the Director of Marketing of Garnier and Maybelline for ten western European countries. They set off to put their education and corporate experiences to work in a positive consumerism and natural capitalism setting. In 2009, Harmless Harvest was born. Two and a half years later, their first product, 100% raw and organic coconut water, was launched to major success—an encouraging proof that sustainable and ethical sourcing combined with a pioneering technology and no marketing budget, could actually work.
