April has been a busy month for the NYSM ladies. We had the privilege of winning StarChefs.com Rising Star's award for Best Concept for our Be Local chocolate bar. They invited us to this beautiful gala where we were able to sample other winning items, listen to great music, and collaborate with other foodies from the Coastal New England area. We had so much fun, getting dressed up and hanging out in Providence!
After that we headed to New York for the Nasdaq Marketplace's Next Great Consumer Brand's conference. There we sampled our chocolate. We were there with twenty other brands who were mainly in the fashion and technology fields. It was interesting to hear different stories. We all shared the common goal of trying to grow our businesses. While we were there we hit up local vegan, superfood spots like One Lucky Duck. So delicious! My favorite was their "cheeze quakers" - all vegan, organic, and raw.
On the way out of the city, we stopped by one of our favorite up and coming companies, Good Eggs NYC, a company whose mission is to grow and sustain local food systems worldwide. They source all local products and deliver around the city, making shopping local easier than ever.
