Zest

There are over 140 million photos on Instagram hashtagged with the word #food. And while they’re getting likes and attention, that’s all they’re doing. At Zest, we believe that foodies have more to gain on Instagram than just a like. Zest is a social media monetization tool for food bloggers, and works by connecting foodies to its affiliate network of restaurants and food companies. Zest was founded in Washington, DC at Startup Weekend by people who love food and technology.

Shea Radiance

Shea Radiance believes that a really great jar of cream can change the world. What started out as a need to find a cure for the family’s dry and eczema prone skin led them to create a line of truly natural and effective body care products using shea butter as a key ingredient. Their quest led them back to West Africa, the source of shea butter, where they found much more than a solution to dry skin. They found a way to help women take care of their families by providing economic empowerment through trade. Shea Radiance supports women in a way that promotes the beauty, wisdom, and dignity of the women that are at the foundation of the supply chain. Shea Radiance believes that when you empower a woman, you empower a family and a nation and change the world.
