Farm Business Lab – Final Pitch Event

Feb 23, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Through a partnership between the Cheshire County Conservation District, National Center for Appropriate Technology, and the Hannah Grimes Center for Entrepreneurship: six New Hampshire farm businesses have participated as the first cohort of our seven-week business planning course which aims to strengthen and transform farm business through the creation of a business plan. Through this course, our course participants have worked hard to ensure the sustainability of their businesses, and in turn, our local food system!

This opportunity, sponsored by the New Hampshire Department Of Agriculture and the Markets & Food USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant Program, ensures that these dedicated specialty crop producers build strong and resilient farm businesses that will continue to support and uplift the community into the future!

The seven-week business course concludes in the Pitch event, a core element of all Business Lab courses at the Hannah Grimes Center for Entrepreneurship.

We hope that you will join us to honor and celebrate this dedicated and talented cohort!

Our celebration will take place at the Hannah Grimes Center for Entrepreneurship: 25 Roxbury St, Keene, NH 03431
