Repeat Roses Founder Jennifer Grove and Jenna kick off discussing her team’s remarkable work repurposing event flowers, delivering them to places like homeless shelters and hospice centers, and then returning to compost them. More importantly, we cover the new precedent the company is setting for businesses to focus on triple bottom line goals: Making an impact in the realm of social responsibility, environmental protection and economic prosperity. Beginning in Jennifer’s college years, we walk through her most formative experiences, from the moment she knew she wasn’t going back to Villanova to deciding to move to the mountains despite a rising career in NYC, working 24-7 to start one of the early e-commerce fashion businesses, while also having a newborn, and her journey at Repeat Roses. Jennifer opens up about the personal growth that accompanied each of these experiences, how she stays present through self-assessment, and her parents’ extraordinary support in achieving her dreams.
