Food Finance Institute Fellows Program Accepting Applications for Value-Added Agriculture Cohort

The Food Finance Institute (FFI) Fellows Program is designed to create investible business models and sound financial plans for food-focused businesses to grow and scale. Fellows are paired with a coach who works with you through all key areas of your business: sales, operations, accounting, finance, food safety, marketing, and branding. Plus, you’ll be in a cohort of up to 15 like-minded businesses from all over the country. The program is free to apply to and participate in. The Value-Added Agriculture (agritourism farm or a farm creating a value-added product) and Processing/Supporting Technology cohorts are accepting applications until January 30, 2022. Both cohorts kick off with an abbreviated version of FFI’s Financial Management Boot Camp, then each business will meet twice a month as a group for peer learning sessions, and twice a month for individual coaching sessions. Throughout the program, Fellows will have the opportunity to take on-demand courses, workshops, and Immersion Trainings.
