Stony Brook University: This is Our Moment

Watch video of Deepti Sharma Kapur ’08 CEO & Founder

Deepti_sharma_kapur is redefining the way you order food.  The newly created online hub is the first of its kind, enabling customers to pre-order from restaurants, food trucks and street carts in one place.  

So where did the idea of come from?  

“I got the idea while studying for the LSATS.  I would be waiting on line for food trucks and it would be 20 to 30 minutes long,” said Deepti Sharma Kapur, founder and CEO.  “I thought it was pretty ridiculous and there would be a better way to access food trucks.  The idea of came about from that.  How to make food trucks more accessible.”  

And making food trucks more accessible is turning into a booming business.  But as appetizing as the idea is, it did not become profitable overnight.  

“Initially I started the business by taking a trip out to India where I was trying to look up a tech team.  I didn’t have any funding at the time so it was all what I had saved,” said Kapur.  “Once I found a tech team that understood my idea and my business, I started raising money.  I raised a half a million dollars from friends and family.”…

Stony Brook University Bone Marrow Drive 11/14/12

My name is Derek Cope and I am the Undergraduate Student Government’s Vice President of Academic Affairs. I am happy to announce that this year Stony Brook University is hosting a Bone Marrow Registry on November 14th in the Student Activities Center from 10AM-4PM. This registry is an extremely exciting initiative with the potential to save countless lives.

Bone Marrow Donation is an incredibly underrepresented form of donation and one that has a very personal impact on the individuals it saves, but also on those who are indeed able to save a life. It is the goal of this drive to educate as many students and faculty on the Stony Brook campus to the importance of getting swabbed and included on the Bone Marrow Registry.

Students from the National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH), Residence Hall Association (RHA), Seawolves Against Cancer and Undergraduate Student Government (USG) have teamed together to raise awareness for this cause throughout the semester. It is our hope to present to as many faculty and students as possible before the date of drive. This is the link to the PSA we created to play at the Stony Brook football games and around campus:

You will find a comprehensive and informative brochure with a great deal of information regarding the process of donation, the importance, and facts regarding bone marrow. You may also find several different versions of the fliers being used to publicize the registry. Please feel free to print and distribute as many copies of these items as possible to help raise awareness for this initiative.

A premiere showing of “More to Live for” will be taking place on Sunday, November 11th in the Student Activities Center Auditorium from 7-10PM. At the event there will be several guest speakers including Dustin Wunderlich, a bone marrow transplant recipient who was treated at Stony Brook University Hospital. Food and other merchandise will be sold for suggested donations, with all proceeds going to DKMS (the international bone marrow registry). It should prove to be a very emotional and inspiring night and we hope to have crowds of people come to support Dustin and the entire bone marrow initiative.

I would like to finally point out that if we are able to swab 2,481 students, faculty, staff, and alumni on November 14th, Stony Brook University would go down as hosting the largest single-day college run bone marrow drive ever! So let’s make history by getting swabbed, getting on the registry, and saving a life on November 14th!!

Thank you so much! For more information contact
