"When our entrepreneurs pitched in front of crowds which were double what they were expecting the crowd to be."

My favorite moment of Start:ME was neighborhood night when our entrepreneurs pitched in front of crowds which were double what they were expecting the crowd to be. They were prepared with extra materials (and food!) and did a great job!

Food businesses are notoriously challenging. What's your favorite piece of advice for aspiring food entrepreneurs?

"Differentiate through service, flexibility, and being customer-oriented."

My favorite piece of advice for a food entrepreneur is to differentiate through service, flexibility, and being customer-oriented.

Several chefs are program alums. Do you have a favorite thing you've eaten from a Start:ME entrepreneur?

"I think I was most blown away by Suryana Cuisine."

All of the food served at Start:ME by current entrepreneurs and alums is delicious, but I think I was most blown away by Suryana Cuisine. It was delicious and unique yet approachable from the standpoint of an American palate.
