Do you have more than 25 people at your company? Do you want to get deals and discounts on products from local NYC startup companies? Reply here. Got something for ya.
About once a quarter, I do an event called #notapitch. Basically, if you've got something--an idea, a napkin, a project, a hunch, a prototype, etc., you can come by and tell me about it and I'll give you some feedback.
No decks, no models, no extended diligence. It's not a pitch. It's just "Hey, what do you think about this?"
Trust me, this would have saved hundreds of founders a year six months of working on a thing that shouldn't be a thing or probably won't be a thing--had they only gotten some early directional feedback.
Best part is, it doesn't really count for anything. You're welcome to *actually* pitch me in the future when you've really got your stuff buttoned up.
Did you know Chobani had an accelerator? I really hope LaCroix gets one, too.
No seriously, though... Check this out:
- $25,000 grant, no equity required.
- 6 "on-site" programs over 6 months. Chobani pays for travel and hotels to visit all 6 education programs. Two in NYC, two to visit Chobani manufacturing plants, one for Sales training, and one to the Expo West in CA (largest natural food trade show). Each session is a 4 day trip each month. This opens it to companies across the US, so no need to relocate.
- Education, mentors, connections, introductions, and full access to Chobani's employees and execs. Chobani grew to $1B+ in sales in under 7 years, they want to help more food companies do the same. The curriculum will focus on scaling up.
- Food companies selling at farmers markets to 100s of retail stores are welcome to apply. Since it's a non-equity grant, companies with prior funding are encouraged to apply.
- Program starts October 18th, ends at EXPO West in March 2017.
- Application deadline is August 10th at noon EDT.

If you're looking for something fun to do this month, how about kayaking on the East River? (The East River?? Yeah, there's a Seinfeld clip for this, too... but I'm not going to link to it.)
I run a free kayaking program in Brooklyn Bridge Park and August is our toughest time for getting volunteers, especially late on Saturday afternoons. We help get people out on the water, learning about kayaking, doing something they never thought they could, and appreciating their environment. Maybe you've seen these types of programs (there are similar ones on the west side) and didn't know how to get involved. We have a signup form for putting in some time. Zero skill is required--just a willingness to show up and be helpful. You can signup here.
And now, back to our show... BTW... Is anyone that I know going to be out east in the Hamptons this weekend? I'm going to be out there mostly Friday and Saturday.
Note: We will start at 6:30 exactly. As always, a group of us will hang out afterwards at a bar nearby. We like to hang out at Rye, which is at 11 W 17th St, New York, NY 10011, between Avenue of Americas and 5th. They have both drinks and food.
