Betty shares her story how she was traveling around the world on a planned nine year trip with her Mother when she cut it short because of an unexpected a-ha moment she had at the top of a moutain with her healthy homemade snacks.
Betty shares how she went from an idea, how she raised venture capital money for the idea and is turning that idea into a world wide healthy snack company.
About Betty Lu Betty is the founder and CEO of venture backed Confetti Snacks based in Singapore and New York City. Confetti crafts award-winning tasty gourmet snacks made from nutrient dense vegetables in exotic flavors inspired by scrumptious world favours that celebrate diversity and inclusion.
