Easy button
Communitech Hub receptionists activate the Food at the Hub button.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that an entrepreneur in possession of a good idea must be in want of a meal.

We know that thinking hard takes a lot of brain power. We know that our entrepreneurs are always hungry. We know that the Communitech Hub often has food left over from events.

Enter the Food at the Hub easy button created by entrepreneur Matin Esfahani of Lumotune.

Communitech's accelerator:
HyperdriveHYPERDRIVE is a new $30+ million tech startup incubator program with a global focus to seed, fund, and grow new businesses.
Kitchener , ON Type: Incubator Sector: technology

“I like food, but I like free food even better,” says Esfahani, whose frustration at seeing food going to waste in the Hub inspired him to take time from his own startup to create Food at the Hub.

The concept is simple: when extra food is delivered to the Hub kitchen, reception presses an Easy Button… the iconic Staples gizmo.

If you sign up for Food at the Hub notifications, you’ll be notified of available food.

There are two easy options Communitech members can use to be notified:

  • Text ‘follow foodnotifier’ to 40404, and/or
  • Follow @FoodNotifier on Twitter

Now when entrepreneurs based at Hyperdrive, or the employees of the tech companies based here at Communitech, feel like they need more brain fuel, they just check out Food at the Hub.

So yes, that was easy.
