JUST YOU WAIT — GOALS

1. To expand the Younique Foundation, which supports women who have suffered from childhood sexual abuse. One in four women will be sexually abused before they turn 18, and the foundation is dedicated to spreading awareness of this epidemic and supporting these survivors through its therapeutic retreats (free of charge for attendees).

2. Stay true to the company motto: “We are a mission-first company. We serve the presenters. Keep it simple. Keep it special.”

FUN FACT, SIR

This is Younique’s second time topping our UV50 Fastest-Growing Companies list — and third time for founder Derek Maxfield. His previous company, NetSteps, hit No. 1 back in 2009.
