The Edible Startup Summit is a training program for food business start-ups and entrepreneurs. We provide talks, workshops, and consulting sessions so that you get the information, connections, and resources you need to help you launch and sustain your food business.

Within the space of the two day Summit, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from successful food entrepreneurs and business development experts about various aspects of building a sustainable food business. You’ll learn about trends in the food sector; product development; business planning; food safety, licensing, and regulations;  financial record keeping, financing, and pricing your product.

We will also offer regional networking events, so that you can build connections with fellow entrepreneurs to build a robust, sustainable, and connected food business ecosystem.
