FaBSCALER SERIES

The FaBScaler Series is a series of "How To” workshops for smaller food and beverage companies (50 or fewer employees) with ambitions to scale their businesses. The Scaler Series’ expertise is uniquely focused on the maker/manufacturing side of the industry and all its idiosyncrasies.  

Whether starting a business or scaling up for the first, second, or third time, entrepreneurs and business owners will tap experienced industry professionals throughout our Scaler Series. Attendees will receive industry-specific professional insights, important food business development templates, personal introductions, and an industry-specific peer network to support their ambitions throughout the life of their business. Designed to coincide with each FaBcap Accelerator class, each year's series includes workshops in:

  • Financial & accounting planning
  • Sales & distribution planning
  • Marketing & branding planning
  • Operations & organization planning
  • Sources & uses of capital finance planning
  • Food safety & GFSI planning

These these workshops are all about applying industry insider experience and networking with purpose. You’ll get out of it what you put into it. Are you ready to scale up?
