FORA.tv Speaker - Lauren Walters
Lauren Walters is co-founder and CEO of Two Degrees Food. Having seen firsthand the problems and consequences associated with poverty, especially in the lives of children, the idea that a new food company in the US could leverage everyday consumer buying decisions to change the lives of hungry children emerged as a viable concept, and one that connected many of Walter's important personal networks.
With the energy and interest of long-time family friend Will Hauser, Walters fused the one-for-one business model behind Tom's Shoes with the problems of malnutrition in children and developed a solution with the goal of giving back to the global community through business. With career stops in politics, public service, business, and entrepreneurship, Walters believes strongly in the power of the right networks of individuals to do amazing things collectively.
