5:30 – Networking and Food
6:30 – Fireside Chat
7:30 – Networking
This is the third event of the Albany chapter of Startup Grind, a global startup community designed to inspire, engage and educate entrepreneurs.
Monthly fireside interviews go deep with startup founders, investors, educators and thought leaders who share stories of triumph – and failure – along the road to building amazing companies. Startup Grind is not a pitch event, and is so much more than just a networking mixer; it’s what’s been missing from the current entrepreneurial event stratosphere.
Walt is co-founder and former President of Fortitech, the world leader in the development of custom food ingredient premixes and blends for the food and beverage, infant nutrition and dietary supplements industries.
After leading and growing Fortitech from a home-grown company into an international concern with over 500 employees and $270M in annual sales, in 2013 Walt navigated a deal with Dutch competitor DSM and sold Fortitech for $634M.
