Tech Tuesday: Innovator Showcase
Date and Time
4:00 PM - 5:00 MDT
Chia Wollschlager founder and CEO of Chia’s Silver Lining and Joshua Mena, founder and CEO of El Paso Freeze Dried Foods are the featured startup founders at this month’s Innovator Showcase. Both of these founders turned their passion into a business. Chia is a cancer survivor who noticed during her cancer journey that although she received excellent care to aid in her physical healing, there was a lack of care directed towards her emotional healing. She created Chia’s Silver Lining to provide compassion, comfort, and connection with others. Joshua Mena has a deep understanding of food science and freeze-drying technology which he is using to address food-related issues such as hunger and malnutrition in the Paso del Norte region. He started El Paso Freeze-Dried Foods to provide healthy and locally produced freeze-dried snacks.
