A few years ago, then 13-year-old Nicky Bronner woke up the day after Halloween to find that his dad had taken away a big chunk of his Halloween candy. Why? Because candy is bad for you. Nicky was outraged.
So he set out to prove his father wrong. Now in his late teens, Nicky is co-running a candy startup with his father, two-time entrepreneur and angel investor Michael Bronner.
