Burgeoning Businesses Met Interested Investors at FamilyFarmed’s Good Food Financing Conference

by Bob Benenson, FamilyFarmed

Building the consumer market for Good Food by helping food and farm entrepreneurs start up and scale up is a core principle of FamilyFarmed. It is also the reason why FamilyFarmed in 2014 launched its Good Food Business Accelerator.

So it is no surprise that the competitively selected Fellows who participate in the Good Food Business Accelerator have a high profile at the Financing & Innovation Conference that makes up the first day each year at FamilyFarmed’s Good Food Festival & Conference.

That was certainly the case Thursday. As the photos below underscore, Fellows certainly had great opportunities to pitch their business plans to an audience that included many Good Food investors, and to represent their companies at the Financing Fair that was part of the afternoon program.

The Good Food Festival & Conference continues Friday with the Good Food Trade Show & Industry Conference (click here for details) and Saturday with the Good Food Festival, our big publication celebration of a better food system (click here and here and here for details).
