Fresh Collective founders Maggie Battista and Leigh Belanger will moderate a conversation on the many paths to funding your dream food business. We'll learn from a range of female business owners at different stages about what worked for them and what didn't. Panelists will discuss the various ways to raise money--from working with investors to crowdfunding, from getting bank loans to applying for grants or awards. Each ticket comes with a free drink from our cash bar – you can buy additional beer and wine, too. Several of our favorite local food makers will sell and sample their goods, so you can snack, sip, and mingle before and after the panel. Stay tuned for vendor announcements. See you there!
Featured Panelists include:
Jody Adams, chef and co-owner of TRADE, Porto, and Saloniki Greek
Teresa Maynard, owner of Sweet Teez Bakery
Evy Chen, owner of Evy Tea
Heather Schmidt, owner of Landsmith (forthcoming; and co-owner Union Square Donuts)
Bev Armstrong, owner of Brazo Fuerte Artisanal Beer
