Last year, we had such a good time with our “What’s Eating You?” storyslam night that we’re doing it again! The 2016 Summit features “Show me the Money: The trials, tears, tribulations and belly laughs of farm/food entrepreneurship!” — a storytelling evening on Friday, April 29, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. (or whenever we run out of stories!) at the River Garden.

It will be an exciting night of stories and vignettes hosted by Daniel Kornguth, local artist and founder/creator of the Soapbox Derby. “Heavy hors d’oevres” will be served, you won’t go hungry. And there will be a cash bar.

And please, plan to tell your own story on the theme of money, in the context of your entrepreneurial endeavors! Within your journey, we are sure you have experienced revelatory moments ranging from the serious to the laughable. Tell us about your highs and lows, your successes and failures, your touchdowns and your fumbles.

What’s your story? A lemonade stand gone horribly wrong? A customer experience that changed your entire business plan? A taste of something exquisite that inspired you to redirect your career into the food biz? Whatever it is, we want to hear it at the River Garden on Friday night, April 29.
