SCALER FORUM 

Our Scaler Forum is targeting the owners and leadership teams of our member scaling food and beverage businesses. These are companies that no longer consider themselves a start-up, now established with proven business models and increased sales year over year. With that said, our member start-ups are welcomed, as are members at large.

Each month we’ll feature an industry leader to share what experience has taught them, followed by facilitated Q&A and optional post-forum discussion to further foster connections.

Forum chairs include:

FRANK JIMENEZ
President
EVOLVE Brands

TERA JOHNSON
Executive Director
Food Finance Institute

DAN KIPP
CFO
Create-A-Pack Foods

KATIE WESSEL
CEO
Milwaukee Pretzel Co.
