The student startup that has collected several top honors in competitions (including being named a top three student startup at SXSW) is yet again headed to the final round of a national competition.
Olin junior Andrew Glantz, CEO of recently rebranded GiftAMeal (formerly FoodShare), told the Olin blog that the company will head to Los Angeles to compete in the final round of the RECESS pitch competition and Capital Championship on June 8. The startup will compete for a chance at $250,000 after winning the St. Louis regionals round of the RECESS pitch competition.
The company also rebranded in April from FoodShare to GiftAMeal, to better reflect the startup’s buy-one-give-one model.
Olin kudos, Andrew and Jacob!
