FlashFood Pitches to CEO of World’s Largest NGO

Yesterday, I had the amazing opportunity to tell the story of FlashFood to Susan Davis, the Founder and CEO of Brac USA. Brac is the world’s largest nongovernmental organization, employing 100,000 and reaching over 126 million people with its services. The organization focuses on empowering disadvantaged communities around the world by offering services in microfinance, agriculture and food security, women’s rights and advocacy, social enterprise support, and many others. After the pitch,  I was also lucky receive some valuable feedback from Susan about how we can continue to improve FlashFood and expand more rapidly to other communities outside of Phoenix.

It was also great to get updates on fellow ASU Edson students’ companies who also pitched at the event, including G3Box, Vantage Realized, Pollentech, and SunSelect. It’s always an awesome experience when so many smart and talented people meet to share ideas and give advice!
