Fueling Innovation, Toyota Awards Grants To Mothers Of Invention At Newsweek & The Daily Beast's Fourth Annual Women In The World Summit

Kavita M. Shukla Founder/CEO Fenugreen Kavita Shukla is the inventor and founder/CEO of Fenugreen, a social enterprise addressing the major global challenge of food spoilage with a simple solution: FreshPaper. Shukla developed FreshPaper in high school, after she discovered its active ingredients in a home remedy given to her by her grandmother in India. The product allows users to keep produce fresh for up to four times longer than has so far been possible. Today, FreshPaper is used by farmers and consumers across the globe, and Fenugreen is establishing initiatives to benefit local food banks in the U.S. and small-scale farmers in the developing world.

Caitria and Morgan O'Neill Founders of Recovers.orgAfter a tornado destroyed their Massachusetts home, the O'Neill sisters created an online organizing platform to help disaster-stricken communities quickly launch recovery efforts. In the immediate aftermath of a disaster, the Recovers.org toolkit helps communities match local resources with local needs using features such as volunteer management tools, donation databases and information hubs to make disaster response smarter.
