...HowGood is using big data to change the food system from the bottom up," said Rick Heitzmann, Managing Director of FirstMark. "Most ratings systems are confusing for customers. HowGood is simple - give shoppers information they can engage with and can't find elsewhere to help them buy products that are the best for their health, society and the environment."
"Over the years, I have witnessed thousands of people start and grow successful businesses using Shopify," said Tobias Lütke, CEO, Shopify. "Becoming an entrepreneur is a dream for many people and Build A Business provides the platform needed to kickstart business ideas into a reality. Providing mentorship along the way has proven to be an invaluable tool and this year, we've brought together an all-star team to provide the guidance needed for these businesses to succeed."
...and if it came from the farm down the street or from across the globe," explained Alexander Gillett, CEO and founder of New York-based HowGood. "We wanted to create a simple tool for consumers to get the information they need on food choices right at the point of purchase. HowGood allows shoppers to look past the pretty pictures and labels at the grocery store to understand the real story behind them."
"We have stores that have reached out and are encouraging producers to switch their practices, and using our system as a database to source better products" he said. "That was our initial goal."
