I wanted to break the ice a little bit and have everyone get to know one another. Feel free to introduce yourself!
Who are you and where are you from?
What is your company called? (Feel free to show off a link or photos! We’re all makers here.)
What’s one fun fact about you not related to your business?
What’s one thing you hope to get out of being here?
I guess I’ll start it off:
I'm Andrew Eddy, and I have a composting pickup business in Atlanta. People call me Andrew, Andy, Drew, ACE, or Pands. I don't have a preference! I am from Atlanta, Ga and live here currently with my amazing wife, Margot. Prior to starting a Composting business, I started and ran a Software startup called Sequr. It is still chugging along but I decided to get back to what I love doing, starting businesses.
A fun fact about me: I am the youngest of 7 children, a twin, and obsessed with Crossfit (what kind of crossfitter would I be if I didn't use a compost forum to talk about it).
My co-founder, Rebecca weizenecker, came to me with the idea of getting into the composting space and really introduced me to the amazing process of turning unused food-waste into amazing, rich soil amendment. I was immediately hooked.
We have since started a residential/commercial pickup service in Atlanta, Ga. We are doing our best to grow and spread the word. . If you’ve got tricky questions about your business, feel free to ask me – I’ll always help where I can. (This would be a good time to point out that I’m a software guy but not a lawyer or accountant, so sometimes I’ll have to tell you to talk to a professional.) Use me as a resource and I am sure I can gain valuable insight from all of you!
