Starting Block Madison: Lunch with a Founder – featuring Nic Mink

February 7, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Join us for our February Lunch with a Founder featuring Nic Mink, CEO of Seven Acre Dairy Company!

These part educational, part networking events are the perfect way to meet other founders in the region, learn from other people’s entrepreneurial journeys, and get plugged in to the entrepreneurial ecosystem of Wisconsin.

This month Nic Mink will share his founder story.

Nic Mink is an academic and entrepreneur who has spent the last two decades probing the depths of American food through his work in the classroom, archives, and C-Suite. He holds a B.A. and PhD in History from the University of Wisconsin and currently serves as President of Seven Acre Dairy Company, a start-up farmstead dairy brand and tourist destination located in a historic cheese factory on the banks of the Sugar River near Madison, Wisconsin.

In a past life, he was co-founder of Indy Food Council, CEO and co-founder of Sitka Salmon Shares, a member of Ernie Mellor’s 2005 prize-winning BBQ team at the World Championship BBQ Cooking Contest in Memphis, and one of America’s top Food Artisans, as named by Food and Wine magazine.

This in person event is FREE and open to members and non-members of StartingBlock Madison. Lunch will be provided.
