With two people who have found over a million dollars in funding for projects and another who is a serial investor who hates F&B propositions, this panel aims to highlight the many facets of why finding funding in this industry is different. The goal is to change your approach as a small F&B business owner looking for funding.  Tim Horton, Vector (Pirate Venture Capitalist); Rob Pololny, Eat Fresco (Owner); and Prem Thomas, Serial Entrepreneur each offer a unique perspective and we're excited to see what they have to say!
