Alina Morse, Healthy Candy Entrepreneur

On Tuesday, March 3, 2020, OLP will host teenage entrepreneur Alina Morse for an Architects of Change Live Conversation! Alina founded her own company, Zolli Candy, at age 7. Alina will talk with us about girls in leadership, what entrepreneurship means to her, and more! This event is free, but registration is required.

14-year-old Michigan ninth grader Alina Morse is the youngest person to ever grace the cover of Entrepreneur Magazine (2018) and runs a multi-million dollar all-natural candy company that cleans your teeth, with Southern California being the first market her products were sold in. Her company is cause-based and is defining the health candy space that is providing healthier options for consumers and growth for retailers. In 2019, SUCCESS Magazine named her a 30 under 30 while InStyle Magazine named her one of “Meet the Women Who Are Changing the World,” which also included former First Lady Michelle Obama, who hosted Alina at the White House twice to hand out candy at the annual Easter Egg Roll. At age seven, while researching ways to create healthy candy that she could have all the time, Alina discovered that childhood tooth decay was the greatest epidemic facing Kids, while recognizing the power of children’s smiles—she committed to giving 2-MM products through her “Two Million Smiles” campaign to help fight America’s most chronic childhood disease—while inventing a sugar-free candy that was free of the top seven allergens. Alina has shared her vision of schools of the future during her TED Talk, “Why I eat candy to avoid Cavities”, talked business on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, and now has eight product lines through her Zolli(R) Candy company, of which, Alina is the youngest supplier to America's largest retailers like: Walmart, Target, Kroger, Whole Foods, Walgreens, and Rite-Aid/CVS.
