FOUNDERS FORUM 9:30am-11:00am:

Diverse thought leadership and peer mentorship are key tenants of the mission of Naturally MN.

This round table discussion will be casual and fun, so join us at the FINNOVATION Lab (4th floor) at FINNEGANS Brewery and Taproom on March 27th 2024 at 9:30am. We are excited to have seasoned founders share their experience around a specific topic, answer questions, and then the session will open up for general questions. The March session will feature Lee Wallace and Alec Davis, of Peace Coffee, and Molly Clark of Taking Stock Food. They will be talking about how they navigated distribution, with a focus on retail strategy so come prepared to discuss and ask questions related to understanding different distributors, when and how to add them, and what to consider before expanding your business's footprint. If you are a Founder don't miss out on this opportunity to connect and learn from your peers!
