Co-Creator, UNREAL Brands
Kris is a sophomore at MIT and also a co-founder of UNREAL™ Brands, a mission-based company dedicated to proving that junk food, a leading contributor to the diabetes and obesity epidemic, can be “unjunked.” Last year, UNREAL launched with five reinvented versions of America’s favorite candies with zero junk and up to forty percent less sugar, but with the same great taste. Bill Gates, Matt Damon, Gisele Bündchen, Tom Brady and Jack Dorsey are among the many who have shared their excitement for UNREAL’s mission and product (see video below). The WSJ compared UNREAL’s innovation to Apple’s and Ford’s. Fast Company named UNREAL one of its top food stories of 2012.
Kris is 19 years old and is also the innovator of the world’s first levitating food. He loves science, technology and food, and passionately believes that entrepreneurship is the medium through which change is most influentially applied.
