Laura Eddington, founder of Little Bumble Reusable Food Wraps won the major prize of Best Overall, on the exact two year anniversary of founding her business!
“Winning gives me an opportunity to spread the message that there is a better way to store food. It’s the highest compliment and validation that you’re onto a great business idea.”

“It’s such a great program because it is local to the region. You have to have the support of the community around you in order to collaborate on ideas, strategies and goals. The program works by building your community.”
