Financing Strategies for Scaling Food Businesses

Venture Café Providence

Determining how to finance your growth is one of the most important and most complex decisions for a founder. In this session, we will share an overview of the types of capital used to fund food businesses such as debt and equity, non-traditional financing, and self-funded “bootstrapping”, as well as hear from investors and founders on how they navigated this key step on the growth trajectory.
Join Branchfood and Branch Venture Group founders alongside a panel of experts to learn about the key components of funding your food business. Bring your questions!

Speakers:

Financing Strategies for Scaling Food Businesses will take place after our January Providence Community Table, Branchfood's bi-monthly, in person networking session for food innovators to make meaningful connections and crowdsource insights from industry experts, at 12pm. Attendees are welcome to work out of Venture Café Providence 1-4pm that day. We look forward to seeing you all then.
