Office Hours: Firm Up Financially in 2021; Join the Live Studio Audience

Office Hours, the show where experts bring their strategy and experience to bear against the complexities of growing brands, is returning to serve the BevNET and NOSH community with all-new episodes starting March 3.

This discussion will center on the state of financing options for growing food and beverage brands with guests Jessica Bates of Dwight Funding and Jeremy Triefenbach of Stage 1 Financial. The pair will leverage their knowledge of the lending markets and the internal financial operations of a variety of entrepreneurial companies to provide advice on seeing founders through the first half of 2021 and the uncertainties that remain due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. They will offer thoughts on the ways brands can make affordable the changing sales and marketing strategies that they were forced to create during the lockdown of 2020, as well as discuss the availability and terms of a variety of potential capital streams that will help companies reset and move forward.

In 2020, many food and beverage companies actually evolved strategically due to lockdowns — but now they face hard choices about following the branches they grew or digging into their original plans. Bates and Triefench will answer audience questions about how the next generation of brands can find support for their plans, no matter how they shift.
