Hamilton Colwell, Founder
Hamilton grew up in suburban Connecticut as the oldest of 3 children. Ever since he was a little kid, he exhibited traits of an entrepreneur. After graduating from Colgate University in 2001, Hamilton ventured into the restaurant world. Definitely not your average post college restaurant employee, he traveled to experience the industry from Colorado to the Island of Martha’s Vineyard to Germany, before he settled in New York City.
Hamilton spent five years working in the investment banking world, enjoying fast-paced world of the financial markets. In 2007, things changed. He witnessed his first real ‘pregnant’ friend go through 34 weeks of pregnancy, and was compelled to help. He combined his love for yogurt and family, with his entrepreneurial spirit, to bring Maia Yogurt to the world. Hamilton spends much of his time traveling and sharing the Maia Love, but misses the serenity of Martha’s Vineyard where he can turn back the clock, kick back and enjoy the island.
