Naturally Network National Pitch Slam Watch Party

Thursday, Aug 8, 2024 4:30 - 7:30 pm MT

On August 8th, you are invited to watch Ben Bacon​, Founder of Lentiful and Regional Winner at Naturally Boulder’s 2024 Pitch Slam, “pitch” his company to a panel of judges/CPG professionals. Ben will be joined (virtually) by the other 2024 Regional Pitch Slam Winners from the Naturally chapters who will also be pitching their companies. We can’t wait to support Ben and Lentiful as he represents the Naturally Boulder community!

This event, hosted by Naturally Boulder, will take place at the New Hope Network office in Boulder. The evening will include celebration, conversation, and education. After the virtual component where guests will view and cheer on Ben, Ben will be answering questions from the audience about his experience as a CPG entrepreneur, nutritional power/benefits of lentils, and you’ll even have a chance to try the product!

You will not want to miss this opportunity to meet Ben and learn about his successful journey as an entrepreneur, all while managing to be a father of 4 young children. In just a few years as the founder of Lentiful, Ben has won the Naturally Boulder 2024 Pitch Slam, Naturally Boulder’s People’s Choice Award, New Hope Network’s Nexty Award, and the Pitch Slam Competition. His infectious energy and unmatched enthusiasm for healthy and convenient plant-based food options is palpable. Take a look at Lentiful products​ that can now be found at Fresh Market, Thrive Market, Walmart and Whole Foods. We also encourage you to read more about Lentiful’s origin and journey.​ What an inspiration!

We will also be joined by five incredible brands, Awakened Foods, Bobo’s, Flouwer Co., Honey Smoked Fish, Hooch Pooch, Liquid Remedy and Quinn Snacks, who will be sampling and eager to chat about their products.
