Rae And Radicle Science
Rae And Radicle Science with Angie Tebbe, CEO, and Co-founder of Rae, and Dr. Jeff Chen, Co-founder & CEO of Radicle Science. Dr. Jeff Chen, MD, MBA, is the Co-founder/CEO of Radicle Science. He’s the Founder and former Director of the UCLA Cannabis Research Initiative (one of the first globally), which grew under his leadership to 40 faculty across 18 UCLA departments conducting cannabinoid-related research, education, and policy projects. Jeff has broad experience as a Co-founder, Managing Partner, Investor, Board Member, and Advisor to companies, not-for-profits, and venture firms in life science, sustainability, tech, and media. He has been featured in Rolling Stone, Wall Street Journal, VICE, CNN, TIME, NPR, and Entrepreneur, and is a part of the Medical Team at Healthline Media (86M visitors/month). He’s a David Geffen Fellow, U.S. patent holder, and Industry Mentor for the U.S. National Institutes of Health Innovation CORPs. Jeff earned his MD and MBA concurrently at UCLA on a full merit scholarship, following a B.S. at Cornell. A fruitful 13-year career at one of the world’s most recognizable retailers, a lifelong commitment to wellbeing, and an endless thirst for knowledge positioned Angie Tebbe to co-found Rae Wellness as an inclusive women’s wellness brand and growing community.
Within a year since launching the company in 2019, the CEO catalyzed sustained success, introduced 20 individual products right out of the gate, and orchestrated distribution in every Target location. Speaking as a woman directly to women, she emphasized the consumer’s needs, first and foremost. The North Dakota native admittedly grew up in “a very humble and holistic household.” Mom worked as a nurse, and dad possessed a deep passion for Eastern medicine. At a young age, Angie learned how to meditate and developed her curiosity for wellness – and how all things can be addressed through a combination of cultures – both east and west. Kicking off her career, she spent a year at Microsoft in Seattle as a Marketing Manager before joining the team at Target in 2005. She spent the next decade-plus at the company. Working out of the Minneapolis headquarters and Toronto, her experience encompassed director positions throughout categories across both Apparel and Home. She spent her final year at the corporation as Senior Director and Chief of Staff, Merchandising.
