Woman founder of online food startup ‘entrepreneurship company’ dies at 33

A Canadian woman has died after suffering a heart attack, a company and a family spokesman said Monday.

The 34-year-old, who had been in hospice care, was hospitalized Saturday at the University of Guelph in Ontario, a family spokesperson said.

She had been a partner in a food-delivery company called Eat Together.

The cause of death was not immediately released.

“We extend our heartfelt condolences to her family and friends, and thank them for their prayers and support during this time,” Eat Together’s chief executive officer, Chris Tamblyn, said in a statement.

The company has since raised $40 million in a Series B funding round led by Capital One.
