UPDATE: Since launching this survey, we’ve heard from 500+ of you that marketing, business planning and fundraising are your top challenges, and we’ve listened. On April 15, we’ll be serving up our first online course: Food Startup Branding 101.
Guided by brand strategists who have worked with companies like Stacy’s Pita Chips, Seamless and Applegate, this course will help you develop your branding strategy and kick ass on social media. This course is designed for food and food tech entrepreneurs. You can learn more and sign up HERE. And be sure to stay tuned for more course offerings coming soon.
Looking for expert advice on how to build a scalable food startup? Having trouble raising money or marketing your business? Need to learn the ins and outs of e-commerce, distribution or food safety regulations?
Launching and growing a food startup is tricky business. Formal education is costly and time consuming, which is simply not an option for many bootstrapping entrepreneurs. And while relatively inexpensive, flexible online education resources exist, many times the information doesn’t translate to food.
At Food+Tech Connect, our mission is to accelerate food innovation, which means helping budding and established startups create a better future for food. So we’ve decided to develop a series of classes to help you gain the skills you need to grow your business in 2014. Our goal is to make expert-taught food business accessible and affordable for all.
For the past month, we’ve been running a survey to help us understand what skills you need to achieve your goals. So far, our most popular requests have been business courses for food startups. We are starting to finalize our initial classes, so if there is a particular class you’d like to see please let us know by filling out this 2-minute survey (no really, we promise!). Based on the feedback we receive, we’ll be piloting a series of in-person and online courses beginning in February.
