“Every restaurant I walk into I ask, ‘What do you do with all your extra food?’ Several say they throw it away because they think it’s illegal to give it away, but in 1996, Bill Clinton enacted the Good Samaritan Act — since then, no one has been sued for willfully giving away food in good faith. Plus, in 2015 the IRS passed new legislation that offers increased benefits for food donors, but they didn’t educate the masses. So we are working against the ignorance of the law. I’ve been telling my team, our job is going to be a lot of education. There are so many benefits for donors to donate food but I don’t think they know about it.” - Jasmine Crowe, founder and CEO of @goodrco 💥 #founderfriday #hypepotamus

"This is going to sound cliché, but the best business lesson I learned is to “Do good business.” It is extremely easy to take shortcuts, especially in startups. There will be moments where you question yourself. That was something I struggled with when encountering those rough patches with our co-founders and consultants. I could’ve taken the shortcut and played dirty, but that would have hurt the company greatly." - Nathan Foster, founder of Enrich Gardening. 💥#founderfriday #hypepotamus

“All of us have done it — we read a text message and misinterpreted. We took that concept of having these badly-received text messages, meaning you don’t know the tone behind them, and we evolved it into a communication and marketing solution that really engages consumers.” -Curtis R. Shoch, president and co-founder of @truthifyapp💥Full story in the link in our bio. #founderfriday #hypepotamus
