Located in Austin, TX and founded by 10-year-old Mikaila Ulmer, BeeSweetexternal site makes high-quality lemonade, made with honey and flaxseed.

When Mikaila was just four, her family encouraged her to make a product for a Children's business competition (the Acton Children’s Business Fairexternal site) and Austin Lemonade Dayexternal site. Using a flaxseed lemonade recipe given to her by her Great Granny Helen, she created BeeSweet Lemonade.  In the process, she also became fascinated with bees; learning all about what they do for the ecosystem.   As a result, a portion of their profits go to organizations working to save honey bees.  Her products are also sweetened with local honey. Now at age 10, when not at her lemonade stand telling all the digestive benefits of flaxseed, you can find Mikaila leading workshops on how to save the honeybees, and participating in social entrepreneurship panels.
