CGG Partnership Advisory Board
Kumbuya.com, Business Development
Chicago Gateway Green: Why did you decide to get involved with Gateway Green?
Jason Klarfeld: I first decided to join Gateway Green because I really appreciated the initiative they were going after. All of the actions that take place with Gateway Green are tangible and as a result, we are able to see what the organization is accomplishing. I like the fact I can plant trees, find plots of land for urban gardens and host events to raise money for the expressways. All of this goes towards greening Chicago and it is something we can all see and appreciate! Not to mention the executive board is pretty amazing and they do a pretty good job of instilling the passion for the cause in all of us.
CGG: What is your favorite thing about Chicago?
Jason: What differentiates Chicago from all other major cities is the neighborhood feel in a large metropolitan area. Everyone and everything is so accessible, which makes this city pretty unique to live in. I also love to stuff my face at all of the amazing restaurants that pop up.
CGG: Tell us something interesting that has happened to you.
JK: I’ve actually had a banana stolen out of my hand from an Orangutan.
CGG: What is your favorite movie, book, or band?
Jason: My favorite book is Startup Nation by Saul Singer and Dan Senor.
