Food Biz Week
A week focused on providing insight, education, and networking for food entrepreneurs. The week will be filled with panel discussions, presentations, and networking opportunities aimed at supporting food and farm entrepreneurs at all stages to help their businesses launch, grow, and thrive. Daily themes will focus on Farm Businesses, Packaged Food/Value-Add Businesses, Financing for Food & Farm, and Foodservice Businesses.
A chance for idea-phase, startup, or existing businesses who have a strong business plan/feasibility combined with a positive IMPACT on their community to win capital for their operations.
The competition provides targeted technical assistance and finance opportunities to all traditionally underserved small business owners who think globally and act locally to support their local communities.
