Four food entrepreneurs (or teams of entrepreneurs) each had 2 minutes on the clock to pitch a challenge they are facing right now in their businesses. Then, with an Entrepreneurial Thought and Action® approach, each entrepreneur received real-time feedback from both an audience team assigned to their challenge and a panel of industry experts.All attendees walked away with a growth in knowledge about food-business strategy, branding, fundraising, and the overall industry.gailsimmonseats working at the @babson food service incubator #foodday2013 http://t.co/pzt9PlBjpuAndrew ZimmernAwesome panel @babson @Food_Sol #Foodday2013 @gailsimmons @andrewzimmern, S.
