From our organizers:
Watch the premiere of Local Roots NYC on Viceland’s new hit show Hustle in the gorgeous theater at Kickstarter HQ.
Local Roots is making our way from your kitchen to your living room with our big tv premiere! In Hustle, produced by Alicia Keys and Chef Marcus Samuelsson, a young entrepreneur named John Henry meets small busineses and helps them get to the next level. The idea is to identify a pain point and work with the entrepreneur to find resolutions. Watch our founder dive deep into her business as she discovers on air what is needed to grow while staying rooted in passion and values.
The screening will be followed by a short panel with Local Roots founder Wen-Jay Ying and the show’s host John Henry (featured in Forbes, Inc, Business Insider, , facilitated by Laena McCarthy founder of Anarchy in a Jar – the OG of artisanal BK food makers.
