How Does It Work:
The four-month program is comprised of an education component for 8 weeks and a practical component for 6 weeks, culminating with a final 2 weeks to finalize the business plan and pitch the concept for funding.
The practical component gives you hands-on experience in the track of your choice, culminating with a ticketed event where you can demonstrate to friends and family the actualization of the business (including food preparation, tastings, meal service, and presentations as appropriate)
Each cohort will have a chance to pitch to a panel of experts for funding.
