Kim and our founder Alison will be sitting down for a conversation that explores these core questions:

  • What do emerging food entrepreneurs need to think about now more than ever to scale?

  • What are some of the brands that are growing successfully and what about how they’re growing has been leading to their success?

  • What are all the channels that businesses need to explore beyond individual consumers to create a meaningful shift?

This is a great conversation to join in on if you’re: a rising entrepreneur in the food space, an investor in the food space, anyone who is generally interested in better understanding the food system space.
