OUR MISSION IS TO HELP GROW COMPANIES THAT ARE DISRUPTING THE FOODSERVICE INDUSTRY

From early-stage innovators to established industry leaders, Food Foundry cultivates a dynamic ecosystem of support through strategic investment, network access, guidance, and tailored programming.
WE SUPPORT YOU IN THREE WAYS
We provide 1:1 introductions to our extensive network of investors and venture capitalists, and connections to other funding opportunities to help our founders secure the financial support they need to thrive.
We facilitate connections for our founders to national foodservice business resources, offering specialized programming and access to exclusive events. Food Foundry also provides 1:1 support to our dedicated mentors, in-house entrepreneurs-in-residence, and Food Foundry's wider network of investors and industry experts.
We organize a variety of events and workshops that bring together founders, like-minded entrepreneurs, experienced mentors, startups, and industry leaders in one of the most vibrant startup hubs in the nation, Chicago, Illinois.
