Startup Stories

Been there, learned from that!

Start up stories

Start-up Stories is a series of small events for young farmers and fishers to hear from others in the industry and how they started their enterprises.

This peer-to-peer model encourages community and connection and allows young farmers and fishers to hear the trials, tribulations, failures, and successes of running and starting an enterprise.

Each Startup Stories event features the “warts and all” story of how a successful young farmer or fisher started and continues daily.
