Our team is extremely proud to announce that Foodtree has been accepted into Bootup Labs! Hundreds of companies from around the world applied to participate in Bootup’s startup accelerator, and we are honored to have been included in the cohort. We’ll be joined by five other exciting new companies. This is a wonderful vote of confidence from a group of successful entrepreneurs and investors, and we really believe that our company will be a better company with their input going forward.
Below is our official press release:
Foodtree is aiming to bring the community and transparency of farmer’s markets to your web-browser and mobile phone. Within foodtree, digitally rich stories from farmers and fishermen lay on top of a social web marketing platform, connecting consumers to the backstory of their food.
Boris Mann, Managing Director at Bootup Labs, said of the Foodtree team, “I have a personal passion for food. Seeing Anthony’s team build, integrate social media tools, and create a following convinced me that there was an opportunity to further connect the social web with something that everyone can relate to: food.”
Grounded in open data and transparency, foodtree will power a comprehensive food web connecting producers, restaurants, retailers and citizens, ultimately enabling consumers to make conscious food purchasing decisions.
To request an invitation to Foodtree’s private beta release, please visit the foodtree homepage.
Really, we couldn’t be more excited. This, along with some additional milestones we will announce in the coming weeks, will enable our team to focus all of our time on delivering a phenomenal experience for all of our users.
