Starting a company can be lonely work
I (Gerry) met Alex hosting speed-dating (Yes, I am actually writing this part). We clicked over -- you guessed it -- that veg life. And we’ve been friends ever since. The business aspect came about on accident. Actually, from a joke. Alex had a Tinder date go bad after she realized he was vegan. His dates hard 180 that made me suggest a plant-based dating app.
Truth is, we never expected Vegr to become what it has. We hoped, and worked, and even prayed -- but there are just some things you can't be prepared for. We wanted to to build something that we’d want to be a part of and go from there. And we feel like we have, and hen some. Which is why we're extremely excited about the reality of a plant-based future. As well as being able to help contribute to its growth.
