Originally, Komal wanted to be a Bollywood actress. But, she decided to go with a more realistic career option: solving world hunger. While a student at UC Berkeley, Komal got involved in food recovery and began to understand the real problems behind people going hungry. After graduating with honors, Komal set off on a career path that led her to a job at Google. However, this just was not the life she had planned for herself and after leaving Google, she began work on Copia, an organization that connects nonprofits in need of food donations with businesses that would otherwise throw away their excess food. In this interview, we discuss the beauty of failure for entrepreneurs, the effects of graduating from an accelerator like Y Combinator, and the importance of understanding how seemingly impossible problems can be solved by modern technology.
