Katherine Swift is the Founder of OMGTea, a distributor of premium matcha green tea that is sourced in Japan. After her mother’s diagnosis of stage 3 breast cancer in 2010, Katherine became passionate about getting involved and supporting groundbreaking medical research. It is through this involvement that she learned about the health and wellness benefits of green tea, which led to the formation of her company. Katherine has extensive experience in media sponsorship and promotion as well as event management. Before forming her company, she worked with notable organizations including The Capital Radio Group, The Guardian Media Group, and The Independent. In addition to OMGTea, Katherine is also the founder of The Healthy Life Foundation, a non-profit organization that funds research for age-related diseases.

She shares her mother’s diagnosis story and how it led to the formation of her company. She shares the challenges she’s faced while building her business and how today’s political climate is impacting small businesses across the UK. She also shares why female entrepreneurs need to be genuinely passionate about their mission and business and how this passion will fuel your success.
