Krysia Zajonc, CEO and Co-founder of Local Food Lab
Krysia Zajonc: I am the CEO and cofounder of Local Food Lab. I am also a food entrepreneur and I have worked internationally with farmers, producers and buyers of organic food. In 2015 I was named one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in Social Entrepreneurship. Previously I worked for Facebook and for Stanford University. I attended Stanford University and Columbia Business School. My experience as a food entrepreneur in Central America gave me a window into how disconnected people are from their food—what they eat, where it comes from and why it matters. I am passionate about reconnecting people to their food and food systems. I have been a speaker at Stanford University’s Food Summit, San Jose State University, the Food Hackathon and the Stanford Social Innovation Summit. Our work at Local Food Lab has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, CNN Money, CPSAN, The Atlantic Magazine, Read Write, The Financial Times, Modern Farmer, Fast Company, Grist and others.
