reSET recently announced the winners of its 2022 Foodie Demo Day at Parkville Market. The first-ever in-person Foodie Demo Day recognized 13 talented women entrepreneurs who have just graduated from reSET’s Food Incubator program. At the event, they pitched to an audience of nearly 200 people for the chance to win up to $1,900 in unrestricted funding.
The entrepreneurs pitched their business models to an audience of community, family and friends, and local leaders, who were able to taste the food as they moved through vendor tents.
An esteemed panel of judges included:
- Kenyetta Banks, the Women’s Business Development Center
- Rache Brand, Star Strong Capital
- Ali Lazowski, Bare Life Organics and a reSET alum and board member
The judges awarded three top prizes, while the audience also got to vote for their favorite, awarding an additional $500 grant.
