Krysia ZajoncCEO & Cofounder at Local Food Lab

I am the CEO and cofounder of Local Food Lab, a platform for innovation and entrepreneurship in local food systems. In 2015 I was named one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in Social Entrepreneurship. I was born in France and have lived and worked in Silicon Valley, New York City and in Costa Rica. I am a food entrepreneur and I have worked internationally with farmers, producers and buyers of organic food. Previously I worked for Facebook and for Stanford University. My experience as an entrepreneur of coffee and chocolate 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 their food systems. I have been a speaker at Stanford University’s 2013 Food Summit, San Jose State University, Future Food Tech’s Food Hackathon and the Stanford Social Innovation Summit. My work at Local Food Lab has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Modern Farmer, The Atlantic, Read Write, The Financial Times, The Los Angeles Times, Fast Company, Grist and more.
