We had the awesome opportunity to visit #Cincinnati last week for @wearemortar’s LIFE’S A P!TCH competition + #smallbiz graduation! Super impressed by the community at-large and the inspiring #entrepreneurs we met. 🙋♀️Question: what other cities around the USA have entrepreneurship/small biz programs that you admire??
In the world of sourcing local, flexibility is key. Look no further than @hucklesauce for evidence. Owners Harrison Long and Kedrick Smith have built strong relationships with farmers that grow peppers for their sauces. One season they turned their flexibility in sourcing into a huge product opportunity! CEO @kimbryden told this story to a group of high school students interested in starting their own businesses, and one raised their hand and said: “Like when you have stale bread, and you make it into French Toast!” Exactly. #lemonsintolemonade
★ ★ 5 WAYS TO SAVE WHEN SOURCING LOCALLY ★ ★ Over the past two seasons of The Tidbit we’ve discussed the foundations of starting a business, tactics to grow one’s business, and we’ve featured some amazing small business owners and their entrepreneurial journeys. As we head into our T H I R D season this Fall, we are going to take those topics and add another key voice to the conversation. 👉 Who are the businesses that are putting their money where their mouth is to buy from local businesses? Who are the organizations breaking down barriers to entry for entrepreneurship? 👈 This episode of The Tidbit is a minisode, a teaser, to explore that demand generation and how, as Buyers committed to the local economy, you can save when sourcing from small business. #linkinbio
