CEO, Fresh Steps
Amrita Ram is a YEA! 2014 graduate from the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce. Amrita was inspired by children’s sneakers that “light-up” as they walk. Her company Fresh Steps was born, a piezoelectric tile system that can power a building from the kinetic energy produced by people walking! Amrita proposes installing Fresh Steps Eco-board product in public buildings as a means of cutting energy costs and decreasing carbon emissions. Amrita was selected, out of 23 semi-finalist businesses competing, to advance to the Finals in Washington, DC and compete against the nation’s top young entrepreneurs at America’s Small Business Summit in 2014.
