If you think you’ve read this story before, you have, sort of…Andrew Glantz, BSBA’17 and his startup company’s app, FoodShare, won the qualifying round of the national RECESS competition last week and advance to the semifinals later this month. If he wins that round, he will compete in the national championship on June 9 in Los Angeles.
Judges included BazaarBoy CEO Eric Hamblett, BSBA’13, Build-A-Bear Founder Maxine Clark, and WashU Investment Management Co. CIO Kim Walker.
Since launching the app a year ago, Glantz has been winning startup competitions from coast to coast. The FoodShare iPhone app helps St. Louis locals discover and recommend restaurants, while transforming restaurants into social enterprises. Every time a user dines at a FoodShare partnered restaurant, FoodShare donates a meal to someone in need through Operation Food Search.
