Turn a great idea into a thriving business.
Chara Krangle and Vanessa Nicola were looking for a convenient way to eat healthfully on the go. The two friends put their heads together and came up with Oat Of The Ordinary, a line of single-serving oat products made with natural ingredients.
“We thought, ‘If we’re going to do this, we have to do it right,’” says Vanessa.
Futurpreneur connected them with a business development manager – who, Chara says, proved to be “an incredible source of support” – along with the funding, mentorship and resources needed to make their project a success.
