Degelis Tufts, Founder and CEO of Tribe Tats grew up around entrepreneurship. As a result she came to fully appreciate the challenges and rewards of such a path. Despite that not being her initial career path, she eventually made her way back toward what she knew best. Diverting from her investment career, she was inspired by her own “tribe” (circle of friends) to create the brand Tribe Tats, as a solution to an already existing product with many pain points.
The success she has experienced is evidenced by the many business relationships she has forged with big names like Facebook, Amazon and Nyx Cosmetics. Read about her story to gain more insight into who she is.
