6:30 p.m. – Building a Food Startup 

Alley Chelsea
119 West 24th Street, 2nd floor

Food has been one of the fastest-growing industries in recent years. Since 2015, we’ve seen food giants launch venture funds and incubation programs. And in the past year, there’s been more than $3 billion in disclosed investments in food startups. In this boom, we’ve seen many startups arise that change our relationship with food—whether they are making it easier to get meals, creating new plant-based foods, or improving the world’s sustainability. But many food startups face challenges other companies don’t—they have to deal with established giants, shifting consumer tastes, new technologies, and FDA regulations and standards. Through all these hurdles we’ve seen food startups make our lives better by offering easier access to organic and more sustainable foods. Join us as we find out what it takes to build a food startup in NYC!
