The Art of Resilience

Sep 27, 2021

In the first episode of season three of In Reality: Lessons from Leaders and Entrepreneurs, John Rebecchi (M.B.A. ’83) interviews Eric Malka, the Co-Founder and CEO of Ingredients Inc.

Eric and his wife Myriam started Ingredients Inc. because of their obsession with natural health and wellness. The goal of the company is to bring ingredients to the forefront of products and to educate consumers about the chemicals in every day products. Eric explains that humans are exposed to 500 or more toxic chemicals on a daily basis, and their company is focused on providing consumers with products that do not have any toxic ingredients. He states “This brand is less about making money as it is to say to the industry enough is enough. It’s time for change.”

Eric’s passion and resilience are what have made him the successful entrepreneur he is today. His advice for future entrepreneurs is to do something that you are passionate about and also make sure that is unique. He believes that you can be successful if you live your purpose.
