I recently iterated the initial concept of McGrocer.com after articulating the combined challenges and opportunities in domestic and cross-border trade of bulk food and agricultural products, BREXIT, COVID-19, increasing global demand for food and increasing demand for more natural/healthier options.
Cross-border trade in agricultural products has existed through history and it still remains a critical aspect in the economy of every region and country. However the process of buying and selling bulk food and agricultural products in the $5 trillion global food and agribusiness industry (2015 McKinsey report) is complex, largely manual and often lack transparency.
I’m keen to connect with other purpose-driven CTO / COO / CFO and Cofounder
With a vision to nourish the world by empowering people and communities to harness opportunities in cross-border agricultural trade, McGrocer is a B2B platform that will facilitate the trade of bulk food, agricultural products, inputs and equipment between sellers and buyers.
The MVP is under construction
- A visionary CTO / COO / CFO and Cofounder to join me in taking McGrocer to the next level and reshape global trade in bulk food and agricultural products.
- Experience of fund raising would be desirable.
- Contacts or experience of sourcing and onboarding UK, Asia and Africa based sellers (farmers, manufacturers/producers, wholesaler, exporters and importers in the agricultural space) would also be desirable.
What We Can Offer
If you're looking for a job, this isn't it. At the moment this role would be in return for equity commensurate with the early stage of the company and the foundational nature of this role. Amount of equity will be discussed on a case by case basis. A salary will be offered as soon as funding is received.
If this sounds like you, please get in touch with a few paragraphs stating which role you're applying for i.e. CTO / COO / CFO and why you are the best person for this opportunity.
I looking forward to hearing from you.
