RGK Foundation announces bootcamp for food entrepreneurs

Event is scheduled for October 20 and 21.

The Real Good Kitchen (RGK) Foundation in Knoxville is launching its inaugural “Food Business 101 Bootcamp” for aspiring food entrepreneurs in the community.

Scheduled for October 20 and 21, the announcement notes that, “If you’re in the early stages of your business, understanding the fundamentals can make all the difference in your ability to move forward. And even if you’re a seasoned cook and entrepreneur, a refresher can be worthwhile. There’s never a bad time to invest in yourself as a business owner!”

The RGK Foundation writes that the two-day workshop will cover “everything from marketing to financials to business structure.” Participants will also learn from experienced business coaches, hear from a panel of local food entrepreneurs, and collaborate with like-minded folks. By the end of the weekend, participants will be grounded in the fundamentals of business and have formed a deeper connection to Knoxville’s food community.

This workshop also serves as a prerequisite for the six-month, cohort-based “Food Business Incubator Program” that RGF is launching in January.

Cost is $50 for the two-day event that runs for three hours on October 20 and all day on October 21 in the Community Room of the United Way of Greater Knoxville, 1301 Hannah Avenue. To register, click here.
