KITCHENTOWN Learning Lab

The KITCHENTOWN Learning Lab offers programs for food startups, food policymakers, food enthusiasts, and anyone who wants to learn more about food and food business. We bring together experts and makers from across the industry — and put them together with interesting leaders from other sectors — to create engaging and informative workshops, events, classes and mentorship programs.

Based at our new food innovation center in the heart of San Francisco's Mission District, the Learning Lab helps busy food entrepreneurs stay curious and creative in the face of great challenges. Like everything at KITCHENTOWN, we want the Learning Lab to be a space where people share expertise, deepen practical skills, experiment with new ideas, and reconnect with their passion for good food.


Upcoming Events

WORKSHOP: HOW TO build a better pitch deck
with Juan Diego Cordón, founder/CEO, Ripened Ventures

A pitch deck is one of the most common tools entrepreneurs have to share details about their business with various stakeholders: investors, distributors, customers, partners, and more. Being prepared with a solid pitch deck can make it easier to respond to unforeseen opportunities. Your deck should be easy to understand, adaptable to different audiences, and concise.

This workshop will cover the basic structure of a compelling pitch deck, with particular emphasis on three key slides: opportunity, problem–solution fit, and value proposition. You'll work on developing and refining language for your deck with feedback from others in the session.

Highly recommended for startups accepted to pitch at this year's upcoming Food Funded Entrepreneur & Investor Fair.
