OUR FOUNDERS


KRISH
CEO/Cto

Growing up, I was fortunate enough to travel and expose myself to different realities around the world. I saw children working in construction sites, chemical pollutants in some of the cleanest rivers, and animal cruelty. Educating myself on environmental and ethical matters pushed me to become a lot more conscious of my consumption and I started becoming that family member that would hoard all the plastics to dump in the recycling bin or that friend that would obsess over different vegan restaurants in town.

Although most of us are at the stage where we are trying to figure out HOW to become sustainable, vegan and ethical easily, I am grateful that PoweredByPlant gave me the avenue to share my knowledge and highlight the best brands that truly care about our environment and our people.

Ramya Ramesh
CGO

I am an Applied and Policy Economics undergraduate at the National University of Singapore. Having had a strong interest in behavioural economics and digital marketing, I seek to understand customers and tell stories. Extremely passionate about driving change in sustainability and conscious consumption, I leverage on data to market cruelty-free, ethical brands. I also document my passion for this industry and plant-based eating on Instagram.

To me, it does not matter whether you are a vegan, vegetarian, or an omnivore. Regardless of the social causes we stand for, most of us can agree on one thing, which is bringing forth compassion; being compassionate about the people around us, the people who are responsible for bringing us our daily essentials and living beings that co-exist in a beautiful world with us. My hope is to re-imagine a planet where we do good, no matter the amount. I hope to, along with my co-founder, Krish, make an impact by educating consumers and providing them with a eco-conscious one-stop platform to make that switch.

Adarsh kumar
Cto

I am a Computer Science graduate with a specialization in IoT and a passion to build using technology. As a tech enthusiast, my goal is to make technology accessible to everyone which motivated me to build my own startup helping businesses build software.

I am currently working on my second startup-up focused on R&D to develop cost effective RFIDs. While I have been health conscious for a long time, my journey to trying our plant-based foods and a sustainable lifestyle just started and I can’t wait to learn more from my co-founders.

Techie talk aside, I am a national level guitarist and music is my second love.
