The Power of Simple | Kavita Shukla

Kavita Shukla’s breakthrough design—FreshPaper, a simple, spice-infused paper that keeps food fresh—began as a middle school science project. Shukla began selling her product out of a stall in a Cambridge, MA, farmers’ market. Now it’s been heralded by everyone from The New York Times to Oprah for its potential to address the massive global challenges of food waste and hunger. In this talk, Shukla shares the story of how FreshPaper came to be, and the challenges she’s faced—and overcome—in her journey as a designer, "accidental entrepreneur," businesswoman and activist for global social change.
