Seeking co-founder/leader with expertise in Gen Z community building for early-stage tech startup in UK

As the main co-founder for MeatFreed, I am seeking to build my network of future leaders of MeatFreed (co-founder, leadership team, advisors) who have deep expertise in building Gen Z communities through engaging content to support our 3-year target of 1M members of 16-24s targeting 20% of the 5M HE/FE students in the UK.
We have started fundraising for our seed/angel round post-pilot and I would like to include those who are intrigued by our vision who could join our team post-funding.
Any connections are appreciated and of course, any connections to investors are also welcome. Happy to answer any questions here or by email, patrick@meatfreed.com. Thanks!

MeatFreed is the only user engagement app that incentivises users to choose plant-based and connect with others. By changing 16-24s’ eating behaviour towards more plant-based, we aim to achieve our vision of minimizing global meat consumption to reduce individuals’ food-related carbon emissions by 70%.
Plant-based meat alternative brands are forecasted to take up to 50% of the $1trillion global meat market with nearly 50% of 16-24s open to reducing meat consumption.
Our pilot at Falmouth University with our MVP, a membership programme targeted at 16-24s, resulted in nearly 10% of the student population converting to members within 2 months. We plan to grow our membership through a student ambassador scheme, much like Red Bull’s, with a target of 20K members by Year 1 and 1M members by Year 3.
MeatFreed is being developed by Patrick Huang and Mike Morris, two executives with significant experience in tech start-up development and content development for 16-24s. We are part of Launchpad, a venture studio out of Falmouth University in Cornwall, UK.

Patrick! I am not looking for a full-time role right now but I might be the perfect team member (part-time/strategy?) to help you succeed -- I run a social & environmental impact community targeted towards busy zillennials: soapboxproject.org and you can see more about my community-building experience here: niviachanta.com

Excited for your org to grow!
