Cooking Up New Business in TLH
High-tech startups get all the attention here in the U.S., but the fact remains that many new businesses aren’t related to technology at all. Thousands of companies open up shop each year in America ranging from law firms to barbershops to martini bars.
And let’s not forget the food industry. Here in Tallahassee, one local organization helps food-related businesses get started by providing space, advice, and networks to “micro-businesses” from around the 850.
Focused on aiding entrepreneurs from the surrounding Frenchtown neighborhood, the KitchenShare Incubator at the Frenchtown Heritage Hub Farmer’s Market has been giving food startups a healthy push since 2014. By providing resources and expertise to local food and agriculture businesses, they’re helping revitalize a historic Tallahassee neighborhood.
Season 3 host Alissa McShane spoke with Interim Director Samahdi Jones and Market Manager Lauren Chappel to find out how KitchenShare is making an impact locally.
To learn more about the KitchenShare Incubator, and to find out how you can get involved in local food entrepreneurship, tune in to Season 3, Episode 3 of the Startup Capital Podcast by Cuttlesoft.
