I have an idea and I'm looking for a Co-Founder

Description
Hi my name is Farleigh and I am a sustainable entrepreneur and go-getter by nature. Since graduating from Edinburgh University I co-founded my first venture Scratch Meals Ltd UK, a food start-up promoting eco-conscious, healthy meal kits, which in turn were stocked on the shelves of UK retail giants Wholefoods, Tesco's, Sainsbury's and Waitrose. Scratch is still running strong today. The idea for my new soon-to-launch venture Farleigh.io came when I was living in LA. There I’d spend weekends trawling flea markets, from Siverlake to downtown, collecting one-of-kind treasures. Clothes, earthenware, cutlery, even skateboards. With zero storage in my one-bedroom Venice flat, I’d hang my finds on my living room wall. Before long – friends started asking if they could buy this and that, which inspired my ‘Friday: shop my wall’ project. It was sociable, collaborative and it encouraged recycling. And this is what we’ve recreated, digitally, with Farleigh.io. My impromptu ‘shop my wall’ experience taught me something really important: that we still trust and value our friends’ recommendations the most. That and the belief that it’s possible to own beautiful products and take care of our planet at the same time are at the heart of Farleigh.io. It’s our mission to bring you carefully curated products that promote conscious, non-planet littering shopping on a platform driven by the power of trusted recommendations. My interest with Farleigh.io is specifically in developing a sustainable innovation that has meaning and purpose. I want to create an online eco-systems that understands the lifecycle and environmental impacts of consumer goods. I want to build a future which is greener, fairer, healthier, more resilient and more innovative than ever before. At the heart of my vision is for us to redefine consumer culture as: more conscious, more mindful, more sophisticated and better informed.
What am I looking for
Launching in this year, my new venture Farleigh.io, is a new social marketplace - a bit like Pinterest, but shoppable; a bit like Depop but more curated; a bit like Instagram but product focused. If Pinterest is a visual discovery engine for finding and sharing image inspiration; Farleigh.io is a discovery engine of shoppable products - everything from homeware to jewellery and clothes. Just like Depop, Farleigh.io's business model will take ten percent of each profile-to-profile transaction. Windows are easy to design and fun to curate. Once a product is published, other customers can re-window, re-mix and re-publish items into their own windows - each creating and sharing their own looks and styles. Similarly to Instagram, Farleigh.io focuses on the power of social shopping and so if a user inspires a sale for another seller by curating it in their window - then they are rewarded five percent just for inspiring a sale. It’s the next generation of influencer commerce where anyone can monetise from curating. I soft launched the boot strapped product in January with a CTO and streamline team. I am now looking for a bright and hardworking co-founder to join on taking the product to market for our big launch later this year. I am looking for a all rounder with specific skill set in business development, marketing and sales, as well as a creative flare. It would help if the co-founder is interested in sustainability, marketplaces, products and e-commerce. The co-founder will also be needed to come on pitches to raise money for investment
