The Sleeper Startup Scene: Food at Its Finest

One out of every five Denver jobs is in hospitality, so chances are you know someone in this rapidly growing sector. Food and beverage entrepreneurs make up a huge portion of the Denver startup scene – and they’re feeding and fueling Denver's booming startup community! New restaurants are popping up at an incredible rate in all the hot neighborhoods all across town. It may seem an easy game to play, "the industry" game is one of the most challenging in which to succeed. Come to Basecamp to quiz innovators who have been successfully navigating the restaurant industry for many years. They'll share their stories of success and failure and how you can avoid the pitfalls. Panelists will touch on their biggest challenges, touch on how technology is shaping the industry, and what the landscape looks like for new food-preneurs trying to get in the mix.
