Kuli Kuli Foods
Founder & CEO
Lisa Curtis is the Founder & CEO of Kuli Kuli. Kuli Kuli is the first company to sell moringa food products in the US. Moringa is a green superfood that is more nutritious than kale and provides a complete plant protein, similar to quinoa. Lisa began working on Kuli Kuli while in the Peace Corps in Niger, West Africa. As a volunteer in her village’s health center, she gained a first-hand understanding of the common nutritional challenges faced in West African villages and how moringa can play a role in helping to address those challenges while providing Americans with a healthy new superfood. Prior to Kuli Kuli, Lisa served as the Communications Director at Mosaic where she managed a team of six to grow the company from zero to over $5M invested in solar through Mosaic’s online marketplace. Previously, Lisa wrote political briefings for President Obama in the White House, served as a United Nations Environment Programme Youth Advisor and worked at an impact investment firm in India. She writes for a variety of outlets including Forbes, The Huffington Post and Grist. Lisa has been recognized as a StartingBloc Fellow, a Wild Gift Better World Entrepreneur, an Ashoka Emerging Innovator and a Udall Scholar. She was recently listed on both the GreenBiz and the University of California Global Food Initiative lists of 30 Under 30 leaders.
