Were you unable to join us last month’s BevNET FBU Chicago event? Were you in attendance or watched the livestream and wanted to revisit the content? In either case, we have some great news: complete video coverage of the day is NOW AVAILABLE for viewing on BevNETFBU.com. A nominal subscription fee is required to access the footage.
Speakers included experts like Bruce Nierenberg from BIN Consulting Group, who is longtime food and beverage broker and offered insider advice on how to bring your product to market; Andy Whitman from 2x Consumer Products Growth Partners, who discussed to attract early-stage investors, and more importantly, the top 10 mistakes that will turn them away; and Mary Ellen Lynch, director of consumer insights and strategic partnerships at SPINS, who brought along category-specific data reports from SPINS for all our entrepreneurs.
The event also featured FBU’s first-ever pitch panel, in which three local brands pitched to our panel of financial experts in a Shark Tank-esque setting. It was a unique opportunity for each new brand to present on stage in front of a panel of financial experts, including Trevor Nelson, managing partner at Alliance Consumer Growth.
Along with your subscription to BevNET FBU, you’ll also have access to hundreds of other educational videos on dozens of vital and relevant topics for newcomers and early-stage entrepreneurs in the food and beverage industry, all designed to help you get hit the ground running from day one – and for years to come.
