Julie Sawaya is the Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Needed. Julie’s passion for nutrition, food, and medicine began around her family’s dining table, as the daughter of a cardiologist and a third-generation immigrant raised on a traditional Lebanese diet. The interplay between the food we eat, our community, and our health was apparent to Julie from a young age.
As an undergraduate economics major at Northwestern University, Julie became impassioned with nutritional access, dedicating her senior year to researching the socioeconomic factors that contribute to food deserts, geographic areas underserved by access to healthy food sources. She later became an investor in consumer companies, helping to launch an investment fund at TPG Capital that grew into a multi-billion dollar, publicly-traded company.
Through investing, Julie realized that women-led businesses receive far less capital than their male counterparts. While at Stanford’s business school, she worked to close the funding gap for women, elevating opportunities for women founders through a series of TED-style talks, and organizing Stanford’s first conference for women entrepreneurs. Julie met her co-founder, Ryan, and launched Needed while at Stanford.
