We had the privilege of hosting serial entrepreneur and consumer products whiz Eric Ryan on our talk series, #BRICKbyBRICK, for a session on Creativity & Innovation: The Fuel to $100 Million Businesses.'

In 2015, he shed his clean reputation to shake up the vitamin aisle with OLLY, an innovative line of gummies and proteins with smart design and downright deliciousness.
Next, Eric ventured into making the finest fabric bandages and ointments that people actually want to buy and wear, co-founding Welly in 2019.
Today, Ryan’s three ventures have reached a collective valuation of more than $1 billion!
Tune in to hear us discuss:

Southeast Asia, it is time to hit the gym.
Who doesn't want washboard abs and to look great in a bikini? 'Fitness' is a broad term and includes everyone from the Arnold Schwarzenegger wannabe to the midlife crisis weekend warrior, to the spinach-eating spin class goer, to the ultra-marathon runner. For some, the goal is to get a six-pack. For others, it is a means to live longer and better. However, every fitness enthusiast is united by a common aspiration - the desire to become better than they currently are. No matter the method-- weights, HIIT, Pilates, or running, we all have the desire to be in shape. The number of gyms and fitness centers is growing rapidly, as more and more people aspire to reach their fitness goals. In this modern day and age, it is difficult to walk the streets without finding gyms and fitness studios everywhere. They've sprouted like mushrooms and have proliferated widely.

Anyone who wears glasses knows the pain points of buying a pair all too well. First, glasses are expensive.
