Zach is the 15-year-old founder and CEO of Frenter. He founded his first startup at the age of 10, an electronics e-commerce startup off Alibaba. At 12 he founded Bernie’s Biscuits, an online dog treat e-commerce startup based on his dog Bernie who had 5k followers on Instagram at the time.
At 14 he founded frenter, an online rental community that has since grown to thousands of users and thousands of items listed in 8 cities across Canada.
He has also founded other startups in the Blockchain, Fashion and Cryptocurrency space all of which he’s learned valuable lessons from that he’s been able to bring into my other business and he’s the youngest founder to join Newchip Accelerator and Propel ICT.
