Mission Statement: To help people accomplish the goal of small business ownership. To help companies that make unique food products get found on the internet to increase sales and exposure and to help web developers and designers showcase their excellent design work.
Farmers Markets are the untouched frontier for web development and eCommerce. Food makers represent an amazing hub of entrepreneurship and hope, most without the technical skills to set their products apart in this Global Economy. But, like most entrepreneurs they are doing everything themselves. There are also a ton of people that want to get into web design and coding. However, you can’t get a job in web design without a portfolio, references and experience (trust me I can’t). So, the Directory has two goals, to help both the Food Makers and the Web Developers find each other and BE SUCCESSFUL.
A long time hobby site of mine, Foodnav.org is now looking to go prime time. I’m a full time student at Arizona State University in the Engineering Management program and this is going to be my entrepreneurial project for several of my classes over the next couple of years. Recently named as the most Entrepreneurial School (ASU Entrepreneures in the News) in the country I’m looking forward to all of the collaboration with fellow classmates and business plan competitions in my future.
