The next FaB CEO Briefing will place a spotlight on how the FaBcap Accelerator Program is accelerating the success of Wisconsin’s Food and Beverage businesses. Just as FaB graduates the accelerator's fourth class, we're pleased to announce that FaBcap 5 will be hosted by our accelerator collaborating partner, The Institute for Business and Entrepreneurship at UW System-Food Finance Institute (FFI) with continued grant support from WEDC and SBDC.

Join us on September 14 to learn about the successes and opportunities this statewide, industry-specific accelerator presents Wisconsin’s food and beverage industry. This Briefing will feature a round robin with some of the program’s graduates, as well as an introduction to the class of FaBcap 5 and a presentation by Tera Johnson, Executive Director of the Food Finance Institute, and Brad Rostowfske, Program Manager for FFI and VP of Industry Expertise at FaB Wisconsin.

From our launching the program in September 2015, through June, 2020, FaB, in collaboration with FFI and SBDC, and with funding support by WEDC and FaB members, have taken 40 companies through the nine-month accelerator. The 40 Cappers - 10 from each class, and all Wisconsin-based companies - have attracted $682,176 in grant funding; $7,356,127 in debt funding; $8,712,112 in equity funding; and have annual sales totaling $29,684,566.
