Isabelle Steichen


Co-Founder & CEO

Isabelle Steichen moved from Europe to the US in 2013. She worked closely with founding teams for various early-stage VC-backed startups in NYC in the food and tech space. Her first role was at Kitchensurfing, an on-demand chef service that she helped launch in various US markets. Then she went on to be the GM for the US at Voyage Control and, most recently, ran the operations and customer service team at Sawyer, a Brooklyn-based education software company that she scaled from 50 to 500 providers within 18 months. Isabelle has additionally worked as a consultant with IfOnly, Hungryroot, Human Ventures and various other startups.

As a long time passionate vegan, certified in plant-based nutrition from Cornell, as well as the founder of the Plantiful Podcast, she is combining her startup background with her desire to spread plant-based eating with Lupii. Lupii is making delicious and nutritious pasta out of the low-carb, high-protein, and regenerative lupini bean. Lupii products are sold on 1,000 doors across the NE, SoCal, and PNW, as well as on Amazon, Thrive Market, and D2C.
