With some very difficult times ahead for everyone, I'm applying a 99% discount so that the interviews can be made available to anyone who wants to see them during the lock-down period. Stay Safe everyone!
Trial and error are for losers and you’re not a loser!
Tell failure to bugger off and open your arms to glory and profit.
Our top food entrepreneurs will spoon feed you stories, tips and tricks to success because they’ve been there, done that and screwed up more times that you could ever imagine.
Use their methods and techniques (for doing the successful bits) to blaze through the fears and inhibitions of launching a business, and make your own food startup fortune.
It’s not cheating its winning.
We've saved you the time and effort of gathering information, getting tips, tricks, and strategies, highlighting pitfalls and failures – and then packaged it all up into videos for you sit back, watch and absorb.
It's not rocket science - just really useful stuff
Do some learning while you're in isolation!
Well you don't have to watch it all at once ya dill!
Then I promise that you'll save 10 times the time (yes, I meant that!) and 100 times the effort with what you'll get out of these interviews.
Get your money back, no questions asked, if you're not totally satisfied. Seriously!
Make it your new evening ritual - pyjamas, popcorn, and Food Startup All-Access Pass?
Hell! Why not invite a hot date over - excite them and freak them out all at the same time? It will be a date they won’t forget in a hurry!
Interviews can be accessed any time any place and, on any device, and you can watch it over and over and over until it sticks like that Frozen song that you know all the lyrics for.
“The Food Startup Summit is a smashing idea. Jay has developed an insightful programme to help new entrepreneurs launch and grow their food & beverage startups in the UK.
Given the lack of quality, real-life, value-added resources available for F&B start-ups, the opportunity to listen to experienced industry insiders for free is an absolute no-brainer. I enjoyed contributing and am delighted to be involved in this innovative approach to helping the UK's future food & beverage startups get out of the blocks.”
“Launching a food startup in the UK market is extremely challenging - and having to learn from all the mistakes you could possibly make can get quite demoralising. I really believe the food startup summit will help entrepreneurs, who are starting out to avoid and overcome the most common challenges - and Jay has been able to extract some real nuggets of knowledge during our interview that could be of real benefit to food startups.”
Over 35 hours of in-depth interviews with food start-up experts including Cecily Mills (Coconuts Organic), Ross Kelly (Seedrs), and Charlotte Moore (Smoothie PR).
Packed with strategies and blueprints you can roll out how where and when you're charged and ready.
Do listen to these masterclass sessions in the car, in the gym, walking to work, walking the dog or when you’re out for a run.
Don’t listen to them as a bedtime story or you’ll be up all night buzzing with excitement like Homer Simpson at an all-you-can-eat buffet.
How many hundreds or thousands would a food industry expert charge you for their knowledge, insights and skills?
You’re talking hundreds of pounds per hour - and we have over 35 hours of video interviews!
Don’t worry if you don’t get it all first time. It’s not university challenge. The interviews are conversational and engaging and if you're a bit on the slow side like me, then just watch the videos over and over until you do get it.

“It can be really tough for early stage founders to know where to look to find great advice from like minded entrepreneurs, and that's why the food startup summit is such a fantastic idea! Jay has specifically developed this to help new entrepreneurs launch and grow their UK food businesses, and the opportunity to listen to so many industry experts for free is an absolute no-brainer!”
“Starting any business on your own is obviously pretty tough - food is no exception. There's a lot of help out there, some good, some not so good and some great - Jay is the greatest. Forever available as a sounding board he helped my Argentinian peanut butter brand ManíLife find a production solution - the vitamix days are gladly over! There is genuinely nothing Jay Nguyen can't help with, whether its doing it himself or using his ridiculous contact base. Will definitely be getting involved in this one!”

Hey, I’m Jay Nguyen, the Robinhood of the food business world – without the tights.
I suck knowledge from experienced and successful food business owners and share it with fresh, budding new food entrepreneurs, providing support and resources to help them succeed.
I don’t do this for shits and giggles, It’s my passion.
I’ve been involved in food business entrepreneurship for 4 years. Being a Co-Founder of Food Foundry, the UK’s first dedicated food start-up incubator we partnered with the world’s largest food start-up incubator, Union Kitchen DC, allowing us to provide best-in-class mentorship, support, and coaching to UK food start-ups.
I’ve been worked with local councils, enterprises such as British Land and international organisations such Swiss Contact, as well as advising on development of new food start-up incubators in both the UK and Australia.
