Jonathan Wossene, Founder, MELTED ELEMENT candles

Meet entrepreneur Jonathan Wossene who shares his story about creating Melted Element candles, a premium retail business he started from his apartment in Alexandria, Virginia. Melted Element candles are destination-inspired, soy-based candles which burn clean, something that differentiates them from the rest of the marketplace. Jonathan tells the story of how his cat inspired the business and helped launch him on a new trajectory to create the premium candles, which have appeared at the West Elm pop-up at Union Market, the Ritz Carlton and featured on CNN. He also shares stories about his love of music and flight, and a previous startup he worked on in the aerospace industry.
