ISSUE – Jan. 14 | Arianna Huffington’s wellness startup launched only 6 weeks ago and has already doubled its revenue targets for 2017

In August last year, Arianna Huffington made the surprising announcement that she was leaving the namesake Huffington Post news organization she cofounded in 2005 to launch a new wellness startup called Thrive Global.

Less than six weeks after its official launch, Thrive Global — which comprises corporate training, a consumer media platform, and a commerce business, selling items like pillows, candles, Fitbits, and a $100 smartphone bed — has already surpassed revenue expectations, Huffington told Business Insider.
