Cohort 2 Brings Technology to the Table

5 Startups, 16 Weeks, $4+ Million Raised In Post Program Funding

Our inaugural cohort comprised startups from across the United States and the foodservice value chain. From increasing local food access to a better way to manage restaurant repairs—our teams met for 16 weeks and attended over 50 workshops. In the end, 3 startups found new homes in Chicago, 1 was successfully acquired, and together they’ve raised over $4.5 million (and counting) since the program began in January 2019. Our new cohort kicks off January 2020.
