On May 22nd we’re speaking with Nabeel Alamgir, Co-founder and CEO of Lunchbox, an all-in-one restaurant ordering suite. Lunchbox recently raised a $2 million seed round led by Primary Venture Partners and 645 Ventures.
Join us at 10 am as we discuss how Nabeel is building a startup for restaurants and small businesses. We’ll discuss how Lunchbox helps their clients (especially since the COVID pandemic), how he’s grown Lunchbox, and his advice to people building in the restaurant tech space.
About our guest
Nabeel Alamgir was born in Bangladesh, moved to Kuwait 7 years later, and to Queens, New York 7 years after that. He picked up the English language by way of Scorcese movies, which somehow led him to become the well-spoken man he is today.
By 17 years old, Nabeel was the youngest Apple employee, working hard at their esteemed 5th Ave location. If he wants it, he problem-solves his way to attainment. Alamgir attended undergrad at Syracuse University for two years, and then realized that in his case, life itself would be a better teacher. He dropped out, bussed tables at the Bareburger flagship store in Astoria, and spent his free time devising marketing objectives for the CEO. In one year, Nabeel clinched 6 promotions, and spent 12 hours a day in his creative office as VP of Marketing. The other 12 went to his startup, a social media app designed to get people out from under their screens and back together in person.
After two failed startups, Alamgir pocketed the lessons learned and began to work smarter. More sleep. Routine workouts. A good diet. His third company would succeed. He used his knowledge from a decade in every corner of the restaurant industry. He assembled a team he trusted from every corner of his life. He built Lunchbox, a system designed to aid restaurants in growing their profits without the fees of third party marketplaces. It may only be worth $2 Mil now, but feel free to check back weekly.
Having learned to balance his work life with free time and extracurriculars, Alamgir sought out a place on the board of Boys and Girls Club of America. His community has supported him, guided him and taught him so much–he enjoys making sure to give back.
