Cooking + Recipe Apps/Startups

Our next food+tech Meetup is set for Wed. February 6 (the night before the Roger Smith Cookbook Conference) and will be focused on cooking+recipe apps/startups.

The Meetup will start at 7 PM and go until 9:30, but presentations start at 7:30 sharp and go until 8:30. The format of the event is that presenters have 5 minutes to demo and 5 minutes for Q&A. After the demos there is time for networking.

WE ARE THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE THAT MEETUP HQ WILL HOST US THIS MONTH! Please do remember to bring $5 cash - we'll be collecting it at the door to defray our Meetup expenses.

    Could you define cooking and recipe startups? In other words, are these companies that actually do cooking and recipe development, or companies that have websites and publish stuff? Looking to meet people who work and are interested in working with actual food and products.

    • Holley A.

      Our membership includes many who work directly with "actual food and products" and I expect many of those will be in attendance. The presenters for this meetup will be more on the tech side (apps and platforms).

    hi holley,

    will there be any investors present at this event?



    January 24, 2013

    • Holley A.

      This is not an investor pitch event - it's typically a 5-minute product/service demo with no "ask" per se, but there might be interested parties in the room. Most of us are fellow food+tech entrepreneurs and interested to see what others are working on and to network among like-minded people.

      January 24, 2013

  • Harry H.

    looking forward to this..
