Boot Camp returns to NOSH Live Summer 2019, offering a half-day educational session for food industry newcomers the day prior to the main event. Early-stage food entrepreneurs and professionals new to the food business will have the opportunity to benefit from the introductory session on the afternoon of Sunday, June 9th.
The additional programming is designed to create a head start for emerging food brands attending the main NOSH Live event. Focused on learning common best practices and hidden pitfalls, the agenda dives into the basics of operating a business in the natural food space, while leaving time for questions during round table networking. This summer’s agenda covers brand design, e-commerce tactics, financing, sales channel best practices, and building a company to scale.
Boot Camp begins at 12:00 PM on Sunday, June 9th in the Green Room 42 within the Yotel Hotel at 570 10th Ave, New York, NY 10036. It’s open to all brands attending NOSH Live Summer 2019, which will be held the following two days, June 10th and 11th, at the Metropolitan West.
