Lang students launch food fest with support of applied business course

Three fourth year Lang business students are eagerly awaiting the opening of the inaugural Guelph Food Festival, an event organized through their start-up company 219 Media. The event takes place this Saturday, September 14th at York Road Park in Guelph.

The idea for a food festival came from their love for food and a discussion in their first-year dorm room three years ago. When it came to the logistics behind launching an event of this size, they relied on both their learnings in class and the support from Lang’s Applied Business Project course (BUS*4550 and BUS*4560).
