Jessica Koncz created the app Crave, the Tinder for foods. It's a cool way to discover cafes and restaurants, as well as access deals. Jess grew Crave from an Instagram page and early on acted as the brains, photographer, and rep for the brand. She started the Instagram page as a hobby to showcase local cafes and restaurants. This is a story of enterprising thinking, a desire to succeed, doing what it takes, envisioning the future of food. Here's what we discuss this week with Jess.
