Working with First Republic is just easy. Our friends are shocked that we can email, or actually call, someone at our bank.
“Mission-driven entrepreneurship” is how Kara Goldin, Founder and CEO of hint, Inc., defines her business approach. When the idea to start an unsweetened flavored water company struck her, it wasn’t a question of if, but how. For that, she turned to First Republic. Since she and her husband, Theo, bought their first home with the Bank in 1999, the relationship has evolved into a dynamic partnership that includes financial guidance on personal and business matters (and early-stage product testing with their neighborhood banking team). As the couple continues to grow the hint, Inc., brand and share healthy choices with consumers, First Republic is ready to meet their evolving needs.
