It’s a full day, and it will cover everything from investment, financial forecasting and packaging design imperatives to the world of marketing online.
It’s BevNET’s Beverage School, which will be held at the Fort Mason Conference Center in San Francisco on Sept. 12.
The initial agenda for Beverage School has been posted, and you can view it on the event’s program page here. The event will begin with “Beverages 101,” carrying beverage entrepreneurs through formulation, distribution, retailing and more. Later in the day, attendees will come to understand legal issues that affect beverage companies, the financial life-cycle of beverage companies – including key times to seek a variety of funding sources – as well as profiles and introductions to investors from the angel, crowd-funding and private equity worlds.
As with all Beverage School events, the opportunity to interact with instructors is of paramount importance. Question and Answer periods are built into all segments, and there is plenty of networking time available.
In-depth profiles of speaker presentations will be forthcoming. Questions should be directed to Jon Landis - firstname.lastname@example.org or (617) 231-8834.
Special Offer! Members of BeverageSchool.com with an active subscription can save an additional $50 (details are on the signup page).
Below is the preliminary agenda as of August 15, details are subject to change:
