Funding Food Program

What is Funding Food? 

Funding Food is an event series that features some of BC's small to mid-sized businesses, a Dragon's Den-styled Pitch Competition, and Networking Sessions curated for aspiring entrepreneurs wanting to jet their businesses to the next level. 

This new initiative, called Funding Food, has 2 main components: 

  1. A stream of programs/workshops to prepare BC Food & Beverage processing companies to present to potential investors

  2. A series of ‘pitch forums’ where selected companies have an opportunity to present to groups of interested investors in 2 stages;

  • The ‘short pitch’ screening, where a larger group (ideally 7 to 10) of food and beverage companies make a concise pitch to a panel of judges, with a small group being selected for the opportunity to make a formal pitch to investors
  • The “formal” pitch, where the companies selected at the short pitch screening session will make a formal pitch to investors with the goal of obtaining funding


Fall 2018 program date TBA.
