MBArk2Boulder Food Leadership Conference

The premier food networking and education event for grad students, undergrads, and recent grads!

MBArk2Boulder is an exciting networking event that debuted in 2019, in between academic semesters, hosted by the University of Colorado’s Leeds School of Business.  After a 2-year pandemic pause, we returned for our third event on January 4-6, 2023.

“M2B” is geared toward professionals, graduate students, undergrads, and recent grads from all around North America who are passionate about sustainability – from marketing to ops to investing to agricultural systems to entrepreneurship to addressing waste, in the food sector and beyond.

It features presentations by many of the foremost practitioners in the world of sustainability, legendary leaders of the natural and organic foods industry, and Leeds faculty… as well as workshops, a food sampling fair, a job fair, and fun networking activities – all nestled in the living laboratory and winter wonderland that is Boulder, Colorado.

It’s like a Net Impact Conference, TED talk, and natural products expo all rolled into one – designed to help accelerate your knowledge and advancement in some of the world’s most fulfilling and dynamic triple-bottom-line industries.
