I have seen some interesting YouTube stories of old warehouse buildings being converted to food incubators. They rent space to entrepreneurs and let them share a kitchen. Then they provide the advice and networking needed to help get a food business off the ground. I love this idea. Let's do something like this in Shillong India! It will launch many food businesses that will eventually benefit the local farmers. Learn about the government schemes to help farmers. Download ebook.
What is a Food Accelerator?
The idea comes from the Good Food Business Accelerator in Chicago. The focus of this accelerating is to mentor the entrepreneur. One of the participants told me it was like getting an MBA. The below is from their website: The Good Food Business Accelerator in Chicago gets farm and food businesses ready for prime time, giving them the skills to launch or scale up. Fellows are paired with industry-leading mentors and are connected to potential customers and investors.
"You need to be able to make great food — that's a given," says Cullen Gilchrist, co-founder of food incubator Union Kitchen in Washington, D.C. Source
A business accelerator like this could be a big boost in Northeast India. We welcome partnership or any ideas on how to move this forward.
I believe that one day others will see that a healthy company is a gift to a community - this is Chillibreeze motto
