About this event

Join us for this online event featuring Andrew Glantz, founder of GiftAMeal–a mobile app that promotes restaurants while giving back to the community.

In this virtual fireside chat, we'll learn about Andrew's journey starting the business at age 19, and implementing a profits-with-purpose model that's provided more than 400,000 meals to families in need.


Andrew Glantz is the Founder and CEO of GiftAMeal, a mobile app that promotes restaurants while giving back to the community. Each time a user takes a photo on the GiftAMeal app, a meal is provided to someone in need locally. So far, over 200 restaurants have joined GiftAMeal and over 400,000 meals have been provided. 

In addition to GiftAMeal, Glantz serves on the Washington University in St. Louis Alumni Board of Governors and guest lectures at the university on the topics such as marketing, negotiations, and entrepreneurship. Prior to GiftAMeal, Glantz ran a non-profit storefront that promoted re-use and sustainability, and served as Vice President of a children’s charity that raised over $300,000 during his four year tenure. Glantz graduated Magna Cum Laude from Washington University in St. Louis in 2017, where he received the Joseph W. Towle prize for top leadership potential and was voted Most Likely to be a Billionaire by his peers. Glantz was named to the Alpha Kappa Psi 40 Under 40 List as well as the St. Louis Business Journal’s 30 Under 30 List, where he was the youngest person on the list.
