Episode 69 - Laura D’Asaro

“If you put in a lot more effort than anyone else you’re gonna have good results.” - Laura D'Asaro

Laura D'Asaro is the co-founder and COO of Six Foods, a company that specializes in making food from cricket flour, which is a much more sustainable source of protein than beef. Their flagship product, Chirps Chips, are chips made from crickets, and have three times more protein and 40% less fat than a tortilla chip. Laura's journey in social entrepreneurship began at age fifteen, when she raised $14,000 through her lemonade stand to build a playground for her community. She has also broken multiple world records, including the longest book domino chain and fastest time to crawl one mile.
