Food Forward has put together a Food Entrepreneur Training Program & TUM’s founder Hassel Aviles is honoured to be a part of it.
The program is reaching out to entrepreneurs who have developed or are interested in developing a venture that contributes to healthy, local, sustainable, culturally diverse, and/or fair food and food systems.
The Program involves:
- two sessions focusing on development of your business model and successful marketing;
- resources with links to complimentary trainings and entrepreneurial supports;
- networking opportunities to connect with like-minded entrepreneurs and foster potential business relationships.
The two sessions will take place at Bento Miso on the evening of Monday, Nov 26 and the afternoon of Saturday, Dec 1. Guest trainers come with significant experience in the good food sector, including Cookie Roscoe (Manager, The Stop Farmer’s Market), Hassel Aviles (Founder of the Toronto Underground Market), Henry Faber (Business Director, Bento Box), and Matt Basile (Owner, Fidel Gastro).
With support from Heifer Canada and in partnership with Scadding Court Community Centre, they are able to offer this program next to free. Food Forward only asks for a contribution of $20 to commit to your spot in our training sessions and accompanying resources.
To register please email email@example.com with your name, business name/idea (one sentence), and one challenge or question you face (brief). You must also make a $20 payment online or by cheque through the form here: http://pushfoodforward.com/join.
