Past Speaker Highlight: Christine Day, CEO, Luvo; Past CEO, Lululemon

FWE is honoured to have hosted Christine Day as a past speaker for FWE. Christine brings 20 years of experience from Starbucks, where she helped grow the company into the eponymous brand it has become alongside Howard Schultz, and then leading Lululemon through one of its most successful growth periods. She has since turned her entrepreneurial eye to a new venture – Luvo, a food brand aimed at creating healthy, sustainable meals for the frozen food aisle.Her fearlessness in the face of growth has made her an invaluable asset to every FWE program in which she has participated, serving to inspire and advise our E-Series entrepreneurs.

“Problems are what we come to resolve, opportunities are what we come to pursue”
