James has worked extensively in the food service industry. A food, technology and excel lover, he carries the perfect set of skills required to start a marketplace for commercial kitchens. He forayed into start-ups with an on-demand food delivery business he crowdfunded in 2014. The service utilised idle kitchen space to cook and delivery food from. After noticing a huge gap in the infrastructure and usage of kitchens, James quickly pivoted his business into founding Cookitoo to help food businesses find under-utilized kitchen space and start/expand their businesses.
