Khyati Sundaram is the CEO of Applied. She brings us her story about transitioning from Corporate into founding a start-up and then finding herself back on the job market being told her resume “did not fit”. At Applied, she found the perfect fit, a company that valued skills and that was helping other corporates do the same.

Jessica is the Founder and CEO of Bonny, the only deliciously clean and sustainably packaged fibre supplements brand on the market. On her second start-up, Jessica has many learning points to share with us on her journey leaving corporate life and setting up 2 start-ups.
