Fueling the growth

The packaged-food startup sector is able to innovate with its excellent access to capital and co-manufacturing, fueling the category’s growth, RangeMe CEO Nicky Jackson writes. “For example, Austin, Texas-based Incubation Station boasts mentors such as Sweet Leaf Tea Company founder Clayton Christopher, who built his company to $53 million and sold it to a division of Nestle,” Jackson commented in her interview with Igor Malyar.
