Kickstart your week with a foodpreneur morning walk from Sourced Market in Marylebone to Whole Foods Market in Camden.

Join three industry experts and a dozen fellow entrepreneurs on this morning mentor walk that will kickstart your working week. On this walk we will be focusing on nailing your social media. So if you are a food and drink founder with aspirations of grow an engaged community of customers through social media join us on this 60 minute morning stroll through Regents Park and learn from some of the industry's leading lights.

What's a Mentor Walk?

We've had some of our most inspiring and insightful discussions whilst taking a brisk stroll with friends and colleagues - the informal, relaxed vibe often leads to much more creative conversation than intense, face-to-face meetings. And so this is what we aim to achieve with our Mentor Walks - they are your opportunity to informally chat to experienced industry experts as you stroll through London with a group of fellow entrepreneurs on the same journey as you. Each walk focuses on a different aspect of building and growing a food and drink business, and it's a great way to start the week.

Start: 08:00am 8th July, outside Sourced Market in Wigmore Street (W1U 2SD).
