Ryan Perlowin left one of the Triangle’s most promising digital startups to launch his own company, and it’s a return to an original love: food.

Perlowin was in business development at Youth Digital, where he spent two years developing important partnerships with Amazon, Target, Groupon and Minecraft, all to help the Chapel Hill online education company move toward its big goal of teaching more than a million kids to code.

“My time at Youth Digital reinforced the notion of how important it is to work on something that is meaningful,” Perlowin says.

Now he’s channeling that energy into his own startup that helps people plan meals so they’re able to eat well and affordably. Perlowin began My Happy Plates as a solution to his own problems. Now he hopes to bring it to the masses through (what he hopes will be) a successful Kickstarter campaign and public launch.
