Innovate Like an Emerging Company
Philip & Gayle Tauber, Co-Founders, Kashi Company
Gayle and Philip Tauber co-founded one of the nation’s more popular natural food brands and regard their laser-sharp focus on unmet needs as the true key to their success. Such a focus led to on-the-spot innovating, a strategy that may seem the provenance of small companies, but one which can give any size entity the daring of an emerging company.
