More that 175 independent start-up food companies working in Brooklyn’s Pilotworks and locations in Chicago, Austin, Newark and Portland, were abruptly locked-out and put on the street on October 13, 2018. Everyone was surprised by the close, given that Pilotworks had raised more that $13 million in funding. Host Jennifer Leuzzi (@MmeSnack) talks with ousted Pilotworks tenants David and Michael Robinov, cofounders of Farm To People (@farmtopeople), on how they are recovering. PieShell (@thepieshell) founder Cheryl Clements and Out Harvest (@ourharvest) co-founder Mike Winick talk about their crowdfunding campaign to raise $50,000 to help people work through this emergency.
