Chocolate Tasting & Networking for Food Startups

Our audience will include entrepreneurs, investors, technologists, bloggers, journalists, food lovers and people who are passionate about improving the human experience around food.

There will be ample time for conversation and networking. We’ll ask attendees to complete a brief questionnaire prior to the event so that we can create name tags to facilitate networking.

    Wonderful event, thank you so much! It was great to meet you all! I look forward to attending another event like this one on another food product next time! Any thoughts? How about a Cheese or Wine tasting?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
