Founded by Jay McNeil in fall 2017, Full Plate Care is a grocery shopping, delivery and in-home preparation service for those aging in place. The company won $31,250 in start-up funding through Innovacorp’s 2017 Spark Innovation Challenge. It was also a finalist in Shift Challenge, run by Innovacorp and the Nova Scotia Department of Seniors in March 2018.
The Glace Bay start-up now has two full-time employees, agreements with national grocery stores and support from more than a dozen home-care providers across the Maritimes. The service will begin a second pilot project in May 2018, with plans to be in nine communities in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick by the end of the year.
Join us Thursday, May 3, as Jay shares Full Plate Care’s journey so far, including the pivots, the breakthroughs, the setbacks and supports, and how his background in sales, marketing and media has given the start-up a unique launch.
