Testimonials

"Dynamic and engaging-- not your usual conference!"

"Good conversation with great people."

"Honest discussion about challenges, sharing of ideas, range of models represented among speakers and in the audience."

 

"I loved meeting all the other great folks working in the shared kitchen / incubator space!"

"There was such a variety of views, concepts, and experience. I felt I could find an answer to any question if I found the right person. Everyone was so open and honest, it created a very comfortable environment for sharing. It was also great to be in a room where I didn't have to explain what a food incubator is."

"This was such an incredible learning experience and I am so proud to be part of it."

"This was so valuable to me. The opportunity to hear what others are doing and how their businesses are run was eye-opening. There were so many variations of my small business model that I was not aware of. It inspired me to level up my game!"
