And the HUBweek Demo Day Winner is…

October 13, 2018

Food For All! An app that allows users to buy unsold food from restaurants for at least half off, the company makes quality food accessible to everyone while simultaneously reducing waste in the food service industry. As part of its Demo Day winnings, Food For All takes home the grand prize of $10k, a spot at the MIT Sloan Executive Education Program, WeWork office space, an annual subscription to the Boston Globe, a Bose speaker system and more!

Five other amazing startups presented with Food For All today on Center Stage at The HUB in our Demo Day pitch finale in front of a panel of judges that included Dell Senior Legal Director Deepika Bhayana, Boston Celtics CEO Wyc Grousbeck, MooDoos Partner Jessica McLear, and Bain Capital Managing Director Greg Shell:

Aisling Organic Cosmetics, a revolutionary line of high-performance and organic makeup. Their goal is to help people easily switch to organics for a future of better health — and what could make it easier than an organic line that outperforms conventional alternatives?

Lumme Inc. is developing a cutting-edge addiction treatment platform by combining wearable technology, machine learning, and behavioral psychology.

Ompractice delivers live, interactive online yoga classes to bring the health and wellness benefits of yoga and related mindfulness practices to millions of people around the world.

Pilleve is an integrated pill bottle that helps care providers and loved ones identify high risk patients and intervene before the onset of an addiction.

Waku is a delicious and nutritious wellness tea that uses 20 medicinal herbs and aromatic flowers from the Andes Mountains of Ecuador. All ingredients are ethically sourced from independent farmers in the southern part of Ecuador, enabling the company’s founders to share their cultural heritage and provide better opportunities to low income communities.

A huge congratulations from all of us at HUBweek to Food For All and the other Demo Day startups. As Brendan Ryan, our executive director, said in introducing the finalists, “Each of these companies is trying to change the world and make it a better place in a different way.”

We look forward to following these companies as they continue on this mission—it’s clear that their journeys are only just beginning.
