Women Create Successful Recipe for Business

In mindset 3.0, social networking, Third World Business on June 24, 2007 at 6:11 pm

Known as a “kitchen incubator,” La Cocina (la-koh-SEE-nuh) is a shared-use space created two years ago to provide a platform for women entrepreneurs without assets. Offering a low hourly rate for access to 2,200 square feet of restaurant-quality kitchen space, the nonprofit La Cocina also provides training from high-profile mentors and technical assistance on creating business plans and building marketing programs. To read the full story, click here.

When I read these stories, it is further validation that the basis for our social networking site, which is to provide “free of charge” marketing to people from developing countries or in support of people from developing countries, is further evidence we have a tremendous business opportunity on which Google and Yahoo have not given much credence to, at least not yet.

Visit the La Cocina, to see relevant and real-life innovation at work. Taken from the La Cocina website. “Welcome to La Cocina Community Kitchen, a nonprofit shared use commercial kitchen and business incubator. La Cocina was founded to serve as a platform for low-income entrepreneurs launching or expanding their food businesses. La Cocina assists low-income food entrepreneurs by providing access to a fully approved and equipped commercial kitchen and to the training and technical assistance they need”.

So, the more people that know about La Cocina, the more opportunity. Again, we focus on synergies that can help these innovators create scale, earn more business and create value for their families. This is www.spangy.com up-close and personal on why our business is so exciting.

  1. This is very cool. I live in Seattle and this concept could be applied to many people who are trying to get their footing. You could pitch this companies like Sysco, or Marriott to name a couple. What a great site and the unbelievable opportunity that exists.
