Meet with PieShell Founder + CEO Cheryl Clements
If you have a great food product, service, technology platform or hospitality idea and you’re thinking about launching a crowdfunding campaign in the next 12 months, sit down with PieShell Founder and CEO Cheryl Clements for a 45-minute one-on-one.

Launched in 2016, PieShell is a food and beverage–specific crowdfunding platform that brings a new approach to funding food and beverage projects of all kinds. While other platforms see high fail rates for these kinds of campaigns, PieShell’s innovative model includes stepping stones (built-in stretch goals), project incubation through best practices, and a growing community of funders dedicated to supporting innovative ideas in food. With nearly 40 projects in the pipeline, PieShell is projecting $500K in funding in its first year, with a 100 percent success rate.
