What does it take to get a product on shelves? How do you succeed in a super competitive food and beverage market? It all starts with an idea.
Join us this December 4th, to listen to some inspiring food entrepreneurs from Upstate NY tell us their origin stories and how they took an idea from concept to validation and beyond. We are ecstatic to have moderator Kate Leonard, Katarina Schwarz of Katboocha, Amber Odhner and Catelyn Augustine of Eat Me Ice Cream plus an additional surprise panelist.
Looking forward to seeing you all there, hearing some inspiring food entrepreneurs from Upstate NY tell their origin stories and how they took their ideas from concept to validation and beyond. Enjoy free samples, ask our panelists your questions, and stick around for networking.
