You have a food or beverage business and want to grow. What's next?

You've had your food or beverage maker business going for awhile, selling at farmers markets, co-ops, and online. Now you'd like to know what it will take to move from a certified shared-use kitchen to a co-packer or even your own facility.

At this four-hour program, you'll be introduced to capacity-building business and financial models and outlets that can support a scaling food or beverage manufacturing business. By the end of this program, you should have a good sense of what it's going to take to scale your business and how to tap the resources available to you.



"I encourage my fellow entrepreneurs to tap the cap. While I came from the industry, getting Top Note Tonics off the ground was hard work. To have had the FaBcap program series available to us earlier would have put us on a more productive path sooner."

Mary Pellettieri

Co-Founder of Top Note Tonics, FaBcap_one Accelerator Graduate and 2017 sofi New Product Award Winner 



WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
  • Early stage, 2-5+ year food and beverage businesses looking to profitably scale and grow their businesses

  • Companies planning on applying for FaBcap_two, our business and finance accelerator
     
  • Food and beverage industry stakeholders wanting to gain insight and influence to best practices for early stage food or beverage businesses
