I’m so obsessed with mozzarella sticks that my friends call me Mozzie Malvi.
Dream Meal: The French Laundry with Reese Witherspoon
Malvi is the Founder and CEO of Cravosity! The idea was born when Malvi was struggling to find a new restaurant to eat out with friends. As a lifetime vegetarian, she spent hours reviewing restaurant menus, finding a time that worked for everyone, and booking a reservation. Malvi strongly believes that the table is one of the best places to form memories, but trying to dine out multiple times a month started becoming a chore. She knew there needed to be a more automated way to curate the dining experience she and her friends wanted - that is how Cravosity was born!
Born and raised in New Jersey, Malvi has a Bachelor’s in Biomedical Engineering and a Minor in Computer Science from Johns Hopkins University. She worked as Technology Consultant prior to pursuing a dual-degree MBA + MS in Design Innovation at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management and Segal Design Institute, during which time she was named Poets&Quants Best & Brightest MBAs in 2021. Currently, Malvi is a Product Manager at Google.
