"Sometimes inspiration comes from the most unlikely of places."
 
Kavita is the Founder & CEO of The FRESHGLOW Co. and the inventor of FRESHPAPER, a simple innovation taking on the massive global challenge of food waste. Her story of simple beginnings, belief, and empowerment was the subject of a short film by Hollywood director Bryce Dallas Howard.
She holds four patents and is the youngest woman ever to receive the biennial INDEX Design to Improve Life Award – the world’s largest prize for design. Today, FRESHPAPER is used by farmers and families across the globe, and The FRESHGLOW Co. has partnered with some of the largest retailers in the world from Whole Foods to Walmart.
Her work has been featured by The New York Times, The Washington Post, Bloomberg, Oprah Magazine, Glamour, The Today Show, and CNN.
 
Kavita has been featured as one of Fast Company's “7 Entrepreneurs Changing the World.” She has also been named to the Forbes “30 under 30” list and TIME Magazine's "5 Most Innovative Women in Food." Kavita holds a BA from Harvard University.
