President of Amazing Edibles Catering, Andrea Herrera will be speaking about her "amazing" experiences along the way and providing key strategies to help new businesses achieve their goals. Join us for some great conversations, networking and delicious bites from Amazing Edibles Catering.

About the Speaker: 
After leaving her job and journeying across the country, Herrera found herself wanting to be more connected to amazing communities and decided to start Amazing Edibles 21 years ago. She has served on 5 boards including ICNC and continues to do philanthropic work.

My biggest project outside of work these days is The Entrepreneurs Organization (an organization of 11,000 leading entrepreneurs around the world in 44 countries and 146 cities). I have traveled the world with EO and received amazing leadership and personal development training as a member. Currently, I am the past president of The Chicago chapter and involved in leadership development globally and will be hosting a national 3 day conference in September 2016 for 500 entrepreneurs from around the world and the focus will be leadership.

This seminar is produced by The Hatchery, a collaboration between ICNC and Accion Chicago to bring education, capital, and support to the Chicagoland food entrepreneur community. Food entrepreneurship programming is funded in part by:
