Most Creative People

Jonathan Neman is a co-CEO and cofounder of locavore salad restaurant chain Sweetgreen. Neman met cofounders Nathaniel Ru and Nicolas Jammet when the three were in school at Georgetown University. After noticing a hole in the healthy restaurant market, they raised $350,000 from friends and family to open the first Sweetgreen three months after graduation. Sweetgreen soon attracted the attention of Shake Shack’s Danny Meyer and Momofuku’s David Chang, along with other venture capitalists, and now works with more than 250 farms nationwide to provide food for its goal of 100 locations in the next year.
