Small Business as a Platform for Change: Adventures of an Ice Cream Startup
Ben and Erica are co-owners of Earnest Ice Cream, creating small batch artisanal ice cream for Vancouverites. Earnest Ice Cream started in June 2012, with the two of them peddling their frozen treats to farmers markets throughout the city. The business has now grown to a scoop shop on Fraser, nine employees, and wholesale accounts throughout the city. Ben and Erica will share their story of starting Earnest Ice Cream and the challenges and lessons learned through launching a values-based small business.
Sorry about the poor audio quality. Our external audio recorder failed to record so we had to use the audio from the camera.
