Creative Iteration might sound like a little too much big-think for a just launched beverage company still finding its bootstraps, but it’s actually a concept that can save entrepreneurs time and money as they push new ideas out to the market, according to Tetra Pak executive Suleyman Muratoglu, who will be speaking during Beverage School in San Francisco on Thursday, Sept. 12.
