Calling all BIMPOC (Black, Indigenous, Multi-Racial, People of Color) leaders in plant-based foods! Join us for an exclusive discussion on key steps you can take to grow your plant-based brand. Learn relevant strategies from leaders who are creating opportunities for businesses in the space, whether you are creating a delicious CPG product, or meals. You’ll hear about how to be retail ready, how to best navigate financial landscapes to help build capital, and how you can pave your own path.

By the end of this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify key components of your brand that help you stand out in retail
  • Learn about key financial tools to consider as you are growing your business
  • List factors to consider if you are going out on your own to launch a business
  • Reflect on examples of how your fellow BIMPOC leaders have raised awareness of plant-based foods in their communities
