A Dragon’s Den Success Story: Barbara Stegemann & Brett Wilson on ET Canada!

Barbara Stegemann’s entrepreneurial vision was formed after her best friend—a soldier—was severely wounded in Afghanistan. Understanding that supporting Afghanistan’s economy was a key to building stability for its people, Stegemann created The 7 Virtues Beauty—a company that sources organic oils from countries experiencing turmoil (such as Afghanistan, Haiti and the Middle East) to encourage change and to reverse the effects of war and poverty.

With a penchant for investing in people rather than projects, W. Brett Wilson is proof that it’s possible to succeed in business without losing your principles. His stories about success, loss, and finding balance leave his audiences inspired to achieve even the loftiest of goals.

The two celebrated entrepreneurs met when Barbara pitched her business idea for The 7 Virtues Beauty on CBC’s Dragon’s Den. Brett loved Barb’s passion for her product, and invested in the business.
