Sarah Davidson

Sponsored by Digital Futures, Sarah began her working life as a mergers and acquisitions lawyer at a leading international law firm. While she enjoyed several years building strong professional foundations, she found it increasingly challenging to reconcile the all-consuming corporate lifestyle with her personal passions for health, wellbeing, creativity and adventure. In pursuit of balance, Sarah and her partner started Matcha Maiden closing a gap they discovered in the health food market for matcha green tea powder. Matcha is now one of the world's premier health food trends and Matcha Maiden is leading the way with a very bright (green) future ahead.

Sarah has now hung up the suits and heels to step into the business full -time. In 2016, the matcha mission developed into a physical venue and cutting edge cafe, Matcha Mylkbar, which is taking the food world by storm. Sarah now splits her time between the two businesses and is thoroughly enjoying life as a full-time funtrepreneur. She has also started a podcast, Seize the Yay, which investigates the difference between success and happiness, the importance of cultivating ‘joy’ and showcases the down to earth, human side of her diverse and esteemed guests.

Sarah will present at October Business Month in Alice Sprigs on Thursday 14 October and in Darwin on Thursday 28 October.
