GIGTANK365 celebrates first participant — Careit 

National startup Careit, which is a tech company that makes it easy for businesses + orgs to donate surplus food to nonprofits, became the first to join CO.LAB’s revamped accelerator program.

The company’s app and software allows businesses with surplus edible food — think restaurants, grocery stores, caterers, hospitals — to post donations to local nonprofits through a free, online marketplace.

A subscription to Careit allows users to track food donations data so that information can be used for grant, tax and policy purposes.

Fast facts:

— Co-founder Alyson Schill is in the process of moving to Chattanooga from Los Angeles, and is already doing business with 11 Southern California municipalities.

— The company is in the process of negotiating a software license agreement with a major media producer that would put the company in several states across North America.

— Alyson is moving to Chattanooga because she can do business anywhere and her partner loves the area, she said at this week’s Intake Panel meeting.

— Now she’s working to establish connections in Chattanooga to bring her service to market here.
