I had spent a significant investment of my savings trying to launch my business venture, and if I had taken this course earlier I'm positive it would have saved me time, money, and the stress of not knowing! I advise anyone who is interested in starting up a food business to take this course first because by the end you will be ready to pitch your food product to potential buyers with confidence.

Kiran and Sima combined to knock this program out of the park! I learned a lot in a very short amount of time and made some great connections too!
Owner of Island Son
I'm on fire with ideas on how to differentiate and market my product. It's been an opportunity to be flooded with ideas that can't happen when I'm busy with the day to day. Can't wait
for next weeks' session!
