FFI FaBcap Accelerator Pitch Event

June 16, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm CDT

Back in September, we hosted the FFI FaBcap Kick-off event to launch the 2020-2021 accelerator cohort. The FFI FaBcap Accelerator Pitch Event brings this program full circle. A major piece of the program is to prepare growing businesses for pitching to investors and this offers our Cappers a stage to make their pitch to the world.

At this event hear from key stakeholders on what is happening in the food industry and what investors are currently looking for in food businesses. You’ll also hear from the ten businesses in our current FFI FaBcap Accelerator cohort on how they’ve grown since September and what their future trajectory is. More info to come!
