Ryan Pandya and Perumal Gandhi were both in their early 20s when they were e-introduced to each other by another person they’d never meet in person either, Isha Datar. A series of online chats led to the idea of jointly creating a company that would put cows out to pasture by making real dairy proteins without the involvement of a single cow. 

Five years later and $60 million in venture capital raised, their start-up, Perfect Day, is poised to sell its first-ever product, and in this episode, Paul Shapiro gets to sample it in the company’s Northern California HQ. 

Hear not only what Paul thought of the world’s first-ever ice cream made with real whey protein that was grown without animals, but also the inspirational story of how these first-time entrepreneurs—still in their 20s!—started and grew their business to this point.
