Peter Bodenheimer started his career in the food business before moving to technology and early stage ventures. Since joining his first startup in Boston in the mid 1990’s he has focused on building products that drive businesses forward. Prior to joining SOSV, Peter served as the Entrepreneur-in-Residence for the Idea Village in New Orleans and as the COO of Plantbid, an early stage technology company in the Agtech space. Before that, Peter was a partner in and helped grow software development firm Flatstack and co-founded and ran Launch Pad Ignition, an accelerator based in New Orleans, LA where he worked with dozens of companies to help refine and grow their business. In addition to his work at Food-X, Peter is fascinated by the potential of Blockchain as a technology, loves the challenge of a good poker game, and occasionally can be found behind a bar mixing up something interesting.
