Episode 150: Is Cureate the Next Food and Beverage Matchmaker in Northwest Arkansas?

About this Episode: 

We recently sat down with Kim Bryden, founder of Cureate, to discuss her organization and the service they provide, “food and beverage supply and demand matchmaking.” 

Cureate is only seven years old, but they have built a three-legged stool of services to help these small businesses grow.

  • Cureate Courses is a cohort model training program.
  • Cureate Connect is a master supplier of local goods.
  • Cureate Consult works with local governments and stimulates economic development for the food and beverage service space. 

Cureate, in conjunction with Forge Fund, is hosting a pitch competition in Northwest Arkansas – Springdale –  with ten members of the Cureate Course Cohort.  The competition will net the winner $5K. 

This pitch competition promises to be the first of many.  Visit to learn more about Kim and the Cureate program.
