FounderSociety Member Lisa Curtis Featured on 2016 GreenBiz 30 Under 30 List

FounderSociety member Lisa Curtis, founder and CEO of Kuli Kuli, was recently featured on the 2016 GreenBiz 30 Under 30 List.

GreenBiz publishes thought leadership content on business, technology and sustainability. It focuses on delivering environmentally responsible practices for businesses in every industry. Its 30 Under 30 List celebrates young leaders in sustainability, featuring engineers, creatives, executives, strategists and more.

The goal of Kuli Kuli is to "create a world where malnutrition only exists in history textbooks." It uses the nutritious leaves of the moringa tree for tasty energy drinks and bars, teas and food supplements. Curtis sources moringa leaves from women-owned cooperatives in Ghana, and in 2015, Kuli Kuli announced an initiative with Whole Foods Market, the Clinton Foundation’s Haiti Program, and the Smallholder Farmers Alliance to plant hundreds of moringa trees in Haiti, giving Haitian farm owners access to a growing market.

Curtis says she believes in growing a company that can provide nutritious foods, empower women and earn a profit.
