Being an entrepreneur in the food business is tough. The key is a good idea and marketing plan. If you build it, people will not come if they don't know what it is and who you are. I admire these entrepreneurs who got in front of this panel and shared their vision for a viable business in the food business. It's never easy to get constructive criticism, but it's what you do with it that will help you get to where you want to go. Best of luck to all of these startups.
NOTE: I was a guest of the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau,
Oahu Visitors Bureau, and their partners.
I thank them for the invitation and hospitality.
