We’re beyond thrilled to announce a new twist on our ongoing CO.STARTERS at the Skillery business development program: CO.STARTERS for Food Entrepreneurs — a partnership between The Skillery and Batch Nashville, specifically geared toward helping food entrepreneurs start, shape and/or grow their culinary businesses.
This new food-focused CO.STARTERS program is set to run from April 9 to June 2, and over those nine weeks, cohort members will work through the hands-on, testing and feedback-based CO.STARTERS curriculum while learning from a broad cast of experienced local food industry mentors, advisors and guest speakers, including Batch founder Sam Davidson, Nashville Kitchen and Cannery head Parker Baggett, Soberdough’s Veronica Hawbaker, Ugly Mugs Coffee and Tea owner Jarod DeLozier and many others.
Participants will also have access to four Deep Dive educational sessions that break down essential topics for budding and burgeoning food entrepreneurs, from branding and packaging to food business-specific legal issues.
As huge fans of the growing and thriving Nashville food scene, we see CO.STARTERS for Food Entrepreneurs as a way for us to contribute to a community we love, and a valuable boost for the next wave of Nashville food players.
Applications for the CO.STARTERS for Food Entrepreneurs cohort are open now, and lots more info is available on our CO.STARTERS for Food Entrepreneurs page. Questions? Let us know.
