Olive Lynch, 52, has an eclectic work history — she trained and performed as an opera singer before becoming a business and data analyst for large corporations. When she was laid off for nine months in 2008, she explored the idea of founding her own company and researched new composting technologies. In her video, she describes the plans for her startup, as well as the innovative technology that she plans to use to recycle food wastes that will convert them into biofuel and protein meal.
