The latest in our series on Startup Stories is about Plated! In this short video we hear from Nick Taranto and Josh Hix, the founders of Plated, on how they have successfully gotten a physical goods company off the ground.  Plated delivers fresh ingredients so that you can cook gourmet meals at home.  They joined Techstars in New York City in 2013 and have been growing super fast with about 45 employees at their HQ and another 100 across their fulfillment centers creating many jobs for people from low income communities.  I love hearing about Techstars companies making such a positive impact.

This is one of those classic, inspiring stories of two entrepreneurs who wanted to solve their own problem and built their company from the ground up.  What makes their story unique in the world of tech is Plated delivers fresh ingredients.  Naturally this creates a ton of obstacles that need to be figured out, and fast!

Watch the video below to hear what Josh & Nick say about solving these obstacles.
