In a landscape of tech companies, a skincare company actually landed near the top of the SF Business Times' list of the Bay Area's 100 largest women-owned businesses. Rodan + Fields, ranked #3, is SF-based and female-dermatologist-driven. And it made $195,682,033 in revenue last year.
The Business Times attributes the company's growth to its direct selling model, but it takes more than a business model to make a successful company: the products (like this three-step, Redefine regimen) have to work, too. Since Rodan + Fields grew 358.6 percent last year —and is expected to post similarly impressive numbers for 2014— there's no denying that the women at the helm are doing something right.
