La Cocina's Food + Entrepreneurship Conference

Bringing home the Chicharrones: Making it in Food

 

Here in San Francisco, you are just as likely to find bacon on the table, as you are to find chicharrones or choila. At the heart of this city’s diverse food culture are the enterprising culinary entrepreneurs from all walks of life.


As local, small-batch, and artisanal foods trends are capturing everyone’s attention, the question remains, can you make it making great food?


Since its inception in 2009, La Cocina’s Food & Entrepreneurship conference has looked at how we can best cultivate food entrepreneurs and  thriving, inclusive communities. Join us on August 17th for a Sunday Thoughtluck  alongside food entrepreneurs, restaurateurs, city officials, culinary experts, and community organizations from all over the world. Alongside thoughtful dialog and hands on workshops, there will be an Art+Food Expo, and of course, oodles of eats! The full conference program is now available, so get amped!


Your ticket will include a full day’s menu of conversations, activities and opportunities to meet people who are all working on food and entrepreneurship, as well as breakfast, lunch and happy hour. Our ticket cost is meant to keep this conference accessible but does not fully cover the cost of the event. Donations are appreciated. Buy your ticket today!


Please refer to the conference website for a detailed schedule.


We hope you’ll join us.

We are incredibly thankful to Wells Fargo for funding scholarships for attendees with financial need. These are reserved for entreprenuers demonstrating significant financial need. You can apply for a scholarship, gaining discounted entry to the conference, by emailing us at conference@lacocinasf.org.
