Food, Lectures & Conferences
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 and a hearty veg-filled snack (you can buy additional drinks and snacks from our vendors). 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.
*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; co-founder Union Square Donuts)
*Bev Armstrong, owner of Brazo Fuerte Artisanal Beer
