The Food Loft

Last year I was invited to Harvard University in Boston towork with their scanning electron microscope for my terra cibus fine art series.  While there, I witnessed a vibrant and innovative food scene.  As a result, I am not surprised that a group has come together to create an opportunity for game-changing paradigms by providing working space, networking and business insights for a select group of food and food tech startups in Boston’s South End. 

The Food Loft is a space created by veteran cookbook publisher, Harvard Common Press--specifically by president Bruce Shaw and associate publisher Adam Salomone.   In a recent article by Food + Tech Connection, Shaw and Salomone said “they created the space to combat the lack of resources – contacts, insights and funding – that they feel prohibits food and food tech entrepreneurs from achieving real success.”  By creating a “coworking” environment they hope to foster great change. 

This is merely one of the food start-ups that Shaw and Salomone have on the radar, and you can read more about their pioneering ideas in a Q & A format here:
