Among them: How Udi Baron reluctantly started selling gluten-free bread, and built an empire out of it; how Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins built an business that's aiming to disrupt the bail-bond industry; and how Alli Webb of Drybar navigated family friction, grew her company fast, and hired new leadership.
Senior writer Christine Lagorio-Chafkin scopes out a new advertising campaign by New York City-based upstart KeyMe, which is taking a bite out of the $10 billion locksmith industry--but also has raised significant security concerns.
The episode wraps with an Exit Interview with Mark Emalfarb, who sold his biotech company Dyadic International to DuPont for $75 million in 2015.
