Office Hours: 10 Reasons Investors Pass…

December 10 @ 9:00 am 10:00 am

Our free online Office Hours conversation on Thursday, December 10 features a pioneer in Good Food investing: Andy Whitman, Founder and Managing Partner of 2x Consumer Growth Partners. The topic of Andy’s discussion is “10 Reasons Investors Pass … And Ways To Enhance Odds of Raising Capital.”

Andy melds the experience of a Fortune 100 leader with the passion and resourcefulness of an entrepreneur. After a successful career with General Foods and Kraft Foods, he recognized that nurturing smaller businesses to achieve rapid growth was his passion. He turned his focus to investing in and helping to operate small consumer products companies, and has been an active part of the emerging branded consumer products eco-system since founding 2x Consumer Products Growth Partners in 2001.

Andy began his career managing iconic brands such as Kool-Aid and Tang. After years of delivering results on big brands, he jumped at the opportunity to run small, autonomous businesses within Kraft in a shirtsleeves environment. Taking charge of brands as small as $10 million that Kraft had been unable to grow or run profitably, Andy’s entrepreneurial leadership produced outstanding results. His ability to grow businesses comes from his proven general management experience built upon a diverse breadth of prior functional assignments, including marketing, sales, operations planning and corporate development.

Join us at Office Hours as Andy shares his breadth of experience in better-for-you investing and his outlook for the opportunities going forward in this sector. Please note that this Office Hours will be held on a Thursday, December 10.
