    Akshaya Venkatesh

    President & CEO

    Akshaya is an undergrad freshman studying BS in entrepreneurship & innovation and the President & CEO of CultivaidUS.org. She is passionate about solving food insecurity, social justice, economic issues and is driven to help tackle these problems. She is on a mission to transform consumer behavior across the nation one state at a time, by creating awareness about the importance of giving away excess produce that is grown in people's very own backyards or farms. She is appreciative of how the surplus produce is able to be re-distributed 100% free through Cultivaid and thus help the needy in her community. In her free time, Akshaya enjoys yoga, self-care, and spending time with her family and friends.
