Calling all food entrepreneurs
Building a successful and resilient food business requires very specific skill sets. Develop those abilities faster and with the support of experts in a six week intensive Upskill Program offered in collaboration with Worcester Regional Food Hub.
Each upskill program includes a weekly two-hour, instructor-led classes at Worcester State University. Participants are expected to dedicate an additional three to four hours each week applying the concepts learned in the class to their food ventures.
Note. These upskilling programs are designed for individuals who have already started their food business journey; these programs are not for individuals who are only considering starting a food business.
Scholarships are available for individuals for whom the registration fee would be burdensome. These scholarships are possible due to a generous donation by Chartwells.
Please submit this scholarship application prior to registering for an upskill program if you would like to be considered for a need-based scholarship. Applications are reviewed on an ongoing basis with decisions made within three business days of applying.
For more information or to request a scholarship, contact Worcester State’s Director of Entrepreneurship, Elaine Vescio.
