Announcing IDEATE

This week we're announcing IDEATE, a day-long event that will showcase the innovative work of New England's food entrepreneurs. Boston's large technology sector and booming restaurant industry prime our city to lead in entrepreneurial opportunity, and we're excited for a day of discussion and connection between the best in the biz!

IDEATE will feature panels on investing, sustainable sourcing, social media, managing staff, and many more topics covering every conceivable side of food innovation. Select startups will have the opportunity to participate in a pitch showcase and receive feedback, and we'll also discuss the importance of restaurants, their impact on the economy, and Boston's role in the industry nationwide. Of course, attendees will also unwind and connect with their peers at the after-party. It's a great opportunity to network with industry members, learn more about available resources for new restaurants, and hear from Boston's hottest restaurant tech businesses!

Featured speakers will include Jennifer Farah, Will Gilson, Jesse Baerkahn, Aman Narang, Josh Lewin, Katrina Jazayeri, Daniel Dain, Irene Li, Brandon Baltzly, Nicole Russo, Louis DiBiccari, Christopher Muller, Sam Hiersteiner, Eli Feldman, Joshua Hubbard, and more.

IDEATE will take place April 4, 2016 at 174 Portland St in Boston, MA. To learn more about our speakers, buy tickets, or receive updates, visit We'll see you there!
