This workshop is for aspiring street food traders, food & coffee entrepreneurs, and people wanting to make food their business.



It doesn’t matter what stage of your start-up you’re at -whether you’re starting with an idea or are already in the thick of it – every participant will leave with tangible next steps for your ‘food business’.



Besides the expert facilitators, everyone makes the day, and as participants, you will be invited to contribute your own experiences and ideas. Bring some of your products or ideas if you want to get some input or feedback from the group.



For ethical food businesses, we offer the opportunity to apply for pitching your ideas at the Local Entrepreneurs Forum in July to get investment and support. 




Facilitators:
