About Malcolm F.

** Environmentalism Through a For-Profit Startup **

Hello Founders-

I'm a New York and Cape Cod-based design, strategy, and operations founder. I have a travel products startup that is doing well ( and I created another startup to tackle the environmental problem of plastic waste in our oceans called SeaHive ( The two companies compliment each other well and Pakt's most recent crowdfunding project ( served as a case study for SeaHive ( So, I plan to continue both but I would like to find a CoFounder to join me on SeaHive.

I have a promising business model and small team already working on SeaHive but I am looking for a Biz Dev cofounder to join and lead the push toward funding and profitability.

I have extensive design and production experience in the contrasting worlds of hardware, fashion, and software products. As a consultant and then a founder I picked up hands-on experience with branding, production coordination, international logistics, distribution, online marketing, and e-commerce.

The collective power of the startup community is awesome. Please reach out if any of my experience could be of use. I love connecting with interesting people building exciting things and I'm happy to help if I can. If we really connect and team up to build something, even better!
