Newark Makers 06.30.16 Meetup Hello Newark Makers,
Our next Meetup is all about food and starting a food business.
Maybe you want to bottle that awesome hot sauce, or produce and package your favorite cookies, or even start a restaurant. Our guest speaker, Lou Cooperhouse is just the right person to meet and seek valuable guidance. Lou runs the Rutgers University’s Food Innovation Center, a unique business incubation and economic development accelerator program specifically designed to get a food business off the ground. Lou’s team can help with formulation, packaging, pricing strategies and other challenges you will encounter as you commercialize your product. You can learn more about Lou’s program at the link below, but better yet, come meet him in person:
We are also going to have displays from Newark’s own Food Entrepreneurs. Come meet your local Wine Makers, Sausage Makers, Nuts Distributors, Ice Cream Makers and world-class baked goods such as the classic Joeys Black and White cookie. These are all companies located right here in Newark and are thriving in the food industry. As a special treat, we invited the Taqueria Autentica food tuck to the Museum grounds to serve us awesome refreshments directly from their truck. All food will be free of charge for the first 30 members who sign up.
Finally,Makerhoods.org will be describing the new development of affordable live/work community coming to Newark. Find out how to qualify for this unique development which dedicates a portion of its space to local entrepreneurs who need affordable shop space or a store front.
