Founder, Schmidt’s Naturals
Jaime Schmidt is an entrepreneur and the founder of Schmidt’s Naturals, a global brand of natural personal care products that she started in her kitchen in Portland, Oregon in 2010. Jaime is known for modernizing natural personal care products, including the customer-favorite deodorant, and bringing them to the mainstream market. Under her leadership, Schmidt’s saw rapid growth year over year and eventually became a household name lining the shelves of retailers including Target, Costco, Whole Foods, Walmart and CVS across 30 countries. The brand was acquired by Unilever in 2017, and Jaime continues to support their global expansion.
Today, Jaime is focusing her efforts on helping emerging entrepreneurs pursue their own dreams. Jaime is the co-founder of Color, an investment portfolio that supports diverse and underrepresented founders, and in spring 2020 Jaime launched the Entrepreneurial Dream Project, a grant fund and mentorship program supporting early stage entrepreneurs impacted by the economic recession. This September, Jaime recently released her first book entitled “Supermaker: Crafting Business on Your Own Terms,” a personalized guide on how to put your business on the map, turning your passion into profit.
