Helping the Helpers
Fruit for Heroes Campaign
We’re all in this together. And with that community mindset, our fruit friends at The FruitGuys® have come up with a plan to support healthcare & hospital workers, essential emergency workers, and food banks with a delivery of healthy fresh fruit. Via their Fruit for Heroes Campaign, every $1 donated = 2 servings of fruit for our healthcare heroes. Donations can be made here.

We’re Better Together
Let’s set the stage. In February, The Chicagoland Food and Beverage Network met at Fifty Gazelles to chat about fast-to-market commercialization of packaged goods. Three panelists, all of whom used to work for large companies, brought their take on the startup world. Below are some of their insights!
1. You have to rely on your gut a little more & you need to unlearn perfectionism
2. Learn, listen, modify, and adjust, adjust, and oh yeah, adjust
3. Treasure the team. It’s all about the team
4. Stay rooted regardless of climate
5. It’s all about relationships and partnerships
What’s the moral of this story? Stay nimble, stay connected, stay strong.
