Solving for caffeine

Solving for caffeine

Kit Chow’s entrepreneurial spirit leads to a successful — and chewy — startup as an undergraduate

When Kit Chow BSx’21 decided to study biological systems engineering at CALS, he knew he would get to do one of his favorite things — devising creative solutions for real-world problems. But he had no idea that his passion for problem-solving, even outside of his degree program, would lead to a full-time job.

Along with chemical engineering major Aditya Singh Parihar, Chow is the co-founder of Boosted Chews, a startup company that makes bite-sized caffeinated chocolates in four flavors: regular, mocha, hazelnut, and mint. The company has sold more than 1,000 bags since launching in early 2020, despite operating almost entirely during a global pandemic.
