You’ve probably heard the saying “expect the unexpected” and being a business owner is no exception! Every entrepreneur faces unexpected challenges and obstacles. These challenges can be both big and small, and they can come from any direction at any time.

Pivoting is hard, but if you do it right it can change everything for the better! It will likely take some sweat and tears to get there, but when you overcome the challenges and look at your business on the other side of pivoting, all your hard work will all make sense. 

I’m so excited to share this week’s guest, Eman Pahlavani, Founder & COO of HUNGRY a food tech startup that has innovated to meet a need and grow their business in ways they never would have imagined!

Main Topics:

  • How HUNGRY was born
  • How to use your platform to give back during hard times
  • How to pivot and then grow even more afterwards

Key Takeaways:

  • Pivoting is hard as hell...but if you do it right, it can save everything.
  • Take care of your employees during scary times. It's critical to keep morale high when things look apocalyptic.
  • Figure out what motivates you and focus on it. Figure out what motivates your team and get them to focus on that. 

More About Our Guest:

Eman Pahlevani is a successful D.C.-based serial entrepreneur. After graduating from law school in 2012, he and his brother Shy Pahlevani founded LiveSafe - a venture backed mobile app company that crowd sources safety intelligence. The brothers teamed up with long time friend and business partner Jeff Grass to successfully grow LiveSafe into a global enterprise. Over the next five years, the trio would raise more than $30 million dollars for LiveSafe and take the brand international.

Later in 2017, Eman, Shy and Jeff again teamed up to create food-tech platform HUNGRY - the first ever online marketplace connecting local top chefs with businesses in need of office catering. The company grew quickly from a $1 million dollar run rate to nearly $20 million dollar run rate in less than 24 months. HUNGRY began launching in new markets earlier this year and today operates in D.C., Philadelphia, Atlanta, Boston and NYC. Throughout his startup career, Eman has been recognized as one of D.C.’s top entrepreneurs. Eman currently resides in the Washington D.C. area where HUNGRY is also based.
