Deepa Krishnan is the co-founder and CEO of Spoonful, a company focused on leading the “food as medicine” movement. Deepa, her co-founder, Sam, and her team have developed a leading and fast-growing application that helps consumers increase their confidence and safety when selecting foods to eat, based on health restrictions, allergies or their diets.
We talked much more about her and the company’s path on the show, including how food is becoming more and more prevalent as powerful health solution, especially for chronic conditions. I’ve greatly enjoyed the opportunity to work with Deepa over the last year, as we are excitedly an investor in Spoonful through Operate.
Deepa has a strong background in software product and data, having previously worked in a couple prominent data companies. She’s a graduate of Princeton University, and earned her JD from UCLA.
