If you are a restaurant owner or vendor supplier looking to be energized by leaders in the food biz, we highly recommend making a trip to Boston next week to attend Babson’s fifth annual Food Day.
The event, which is free and open to the public, kicks off next Tuesday October 20th with an evening panel including 12 chefs. Celebrity chefs such as Andrew Zimmern and Gail Simmons will share their thoughts on the future of food while fielding questions from the audience. For more information, click here: Food Day Details.
We recently spoke with the Director of Babson Food Sol Rachel Greenberger about the inspiration behind Food Day. She intimated the vision of Babson’s entrepreneurship program, their food-oriented action tank Food Sol, and the various food conferences that take place on campus throughout the year. “Babson is globally recognized for pioneering an entrepreneurial method. At Babson, it’s really all about thought and action; the focus is more on (nurturing the entrepreneurial) mindset than the outcome.”
This year’s tagline, a thoughtful pivot from previous years, serves up a “Recipe for Good Food Innovation”. If you have a busy schedule, don’t worry. Patrons can come and go as they please. Just make sure to arrive to your most desired sessions early if you want a seat. Last year over 1500 people turned out for the conference, a large percentage of which hail from outside Babson, and this year promises to be an even greater success. Space will be limited.
So if you are looking for an event that will provoke curiosity while at the same time enabling you to connect with other like-minded restaurant entrepreneurs, take a peek at the programming. You won’t be disappointed.
Oh. And BlueCart will be there of course. Give us a shout! We’d love to meet you!
