At Foodspace we are creating an app and logistics platform, to help people streamline their food experience to better manage their personal food space and waste less. We help consumers find delicious recipes, create shopping lists, manage inventory all while saving money. So be it planning, shopping, or cooking, we are creating an intentional food experience for people to build their most authentic and conscious connections to food. We also work with retailers in order to provide better solutions to their smart kitchen software with integrations that allows for an easier food journey.
For website and application users, foodspace offers a suite of seamless services to simplify their relationship with food, from planning to shopping. New users can input nutritional goals and budget constraints, and foodspace suggests recipes that fulfill the criteria. From those recipes, foodspace generates customizable shopping lists. Users are also able to toggle search options highlighting their food preferences (organic, price, etc.). All features and services are free for the user for both web and mobile applications

Artificial intelligence (AI) powered recipe suggestions enable the app to understand users’ tastes and provide customized recipes. As shoppers engage more with foodspace, the app develops a better understanding of what they enjoy eating, creating a cycle of positive feedback between the platform and the user.
foodspace delivers a simple solution to a complex issue. By incorporating a consumer-focused approach, the app recognizes that broader goals of reducing food waste can be more easily achieved when coupled with tools that make users’ everyday lives simpler. While many people do not have the time or resources to concentrate explicitly on reducing their food waste, foodspace helps make food consciousness easy and financially beneficial. Inventory Manager is also linked to Shopping List, allowing for the seamless, real-time updating of inventory. Inventory Manager also estimates and tracks food items’ expiration dates, helping to ensure that they are used in a timely manner and allowing users to minimize their in-home food waste. Imagine your Salmon going bad in a few days, we will help consumers find recipes that meet needs to reduce foodwaste.

IKEA will be able to leverage their grocery store capabilities and help their consumers manage their food journey. We will also be able to understand the traffic of consumers before and after purchases.

I have been working with Foodspace as a mentor in Northeastern University's Health Sciences Entrepreneurs program. They have a focused and hard working team. The Foodspace leader is Ayo Oshinaike. He is highly effective and possesses natural leadership skills. He and his team are committed to creating a venture that is successful as a business and also contributes to society in a meaningful way. They communicate clearly, regularly and in a meaningful way. I am impressed with their progress and strongly recommend Foodspace.

The Foodspace LLC company is both motivated and driven to succeed in their space. The company's management has developed a compelling business model which will ultimately yield rapid sales growth and eventual significant profitability Thru my role as an HSE mentor I have discovered that the founders are both open ,communicative driven and professional. As a startup company, they have exhibited a clear understanding of their market, its competition and how to position and leverage their advantages to gain traction. Their strategy has been developed from extensive market research in the food industry. Their initial website product prototype performed well and has been continually perfected and updated from feedback obtained from prospects, experts, and advisers. The management has been able to locate very specific technical skills and have managed to hire outside talent. They have a clear understanding of its financial requirements and have budgeted. accordingly.

I was first introduced to FoodSpace by Northestern University and started following their journey as an advisor.
We met regularly to discuss about their plans and assess progress in building FoodSpace.
My experience with the team is that they are enthusiastic, focused on delivering the value, ready to listen, ready also to modify the course of their work if they become convinced that the initial goal will be met. On top of this, the team seems to be working well together.!
Fun to work with them.

For the past several months I have acted as an advisor to Foodspace. I initially was introduced to the company through the Cleantech Open Northeast program. In my time working with Foodspace, I have seen two very bright entrepreneurs willing to consider any problem, take any piece of advice, and look under every rock, in search of solutions to the modern day food journey. From the outset, Ayo and Dan impressed me with their careful attention to scaling their product--seeking early sources of revenue in order to prove their model, while focusing long term on sustainable revenue structures--and learning to walk before they try to run. They are at the very early stages of a long, successful journey.

Beth Zonis Director at Cleantech Open Northeast

Ayo Oshinaike of Foodspace participated in and graduated from the 2018 Cleantech Open accelerator. Foodspace started the program as a development team, because the solution was not as mature as the other startups in the cohort. After a few months, an evaluation team voted to promote Foodspace to be a full member of the cohort. He had progressed sufficiently. From the beginning, Ayo was very persistent. He was diligent about completing his materials on time, attending and participating actively in all of the Business Clinics that were offered, and demonstrating his dedication to the curriculum and to his business. His lead mentor believed his business case was compelling, and thought he was realistic about what he needed to work on. After the promotion, he worked with 3 additional mentors and graduated in good standing with the rest of the cohort. Ayo is always cheerful and hard working. He's passionate about his startup and he's a pleasure to have around.
