The Business of Meal Kit Subscriptions

In the last year there's been a wave of startups that have launched to make home cooking and delivery easier and healthier. Order a dinner kit or meal online, and you get a box of fresh ingredients and recipes delivered to your doorstep. 

Join us for an inside look at how these startups operate and make money. Each of the startups will have 5 minutes to demo and 5 minutes for Q&A. There will be networking after the presentations. 


Plated - A TechStars backed meal kit subscription box that delivers ingredients and chef-created recipes to your door. @plated / [masked]
