About this event

GA will support Virgin Startup at the Virgin Foodpreneur Fest 2014 – an amazing opportunity for the nation’s food startups to get their products in front of some of the UK’s most influential foodies.

8 lucky businesses will see their food judged by experts, including Richard Branson himself.

However, even if your business doesn’t make it through to the final round, there's still got a fantastic opportunity for foodpreneurs to take part in the event itself – a day of workshops, followed by the judging ceremony, and then a Prosecco reception where you can mingle with other entrepreneurs and influencers to top it all off.

Presented by Ben Keene, founder of TribeWanted, it’s an unmissable opportunity.

The schedule of the day is as follows:

10:30am – Arrive at the venue and get to know your fellow work-shoppers

11:15am - Panel session 1: The practical stuff Guest talks from: Frank Yeung – Founder of Poncho8 John Finnemore – Head of Entrepreneurs Group, Nabarro Clive Lewis – Head of Enterprise, ICAEW
