1. Meals for companies – our menus are based on a healthy diet and lifestyle and are inspired by the world’s most popular cuisines. 2. Our culinary courses for disadvantaged youth are supplied by Open Gate International and have been in place for 4 years. They are run by world-class experts with the involvement of renowned chefs. 3. Our Open Gate Burger project is about to launch. It will deliver American-style burgers all over the city. This project is designed to generate income to sustain the culinary courses and create jobs for students.

I am an entrepreneur and a marketing and business consultant for startups. I encourage entrepreneurs to be socially involved by donating 10% of my own company’s income, as well as by promoting projects that support social entrepreneurship. I am currently promoting OPEN GATE KITCHEN (OGK) – a catering project run by a team of over 10 people and dedicated to delivering healthy meals to companies. The initiative creates socially inclusive opportunities by providing culinary courses and supplying jobs for students from disadvantaged backgrounds. OGK delivers good food for busy teams at their workplaces and uses the profits to give disadvantaged young people free cooking lessons.
