Norah Eddy built an innovative company that makes seafood not only sustainable but helps improve the health of the oceans while connecting people with their food. She also wanted to empower other young female entrepreneurs to take risks in industries primarily dominated by men.
Norah co-founded Salty Girl, a sustainable seafood company with an innovative way of doing business. She grew up in a small New England fishing town and has worked on and around fisheries and boats all over the world. As a surfer and all around water-woman, her love for the ocean is apparent not just in her work with Salty Girl, but in her personal life too.
I talked to Norah just before she gave her first TED Talk, and I can see why they invited her. Norah’s created an inspiring company that’s helping connect people with the food that they eat while encouraging sustainable practices. We talked about sustainability, becoming an entrepreneur, being a young businesswoman in a male-dominated field, and creating a mission-based company.
