Overview

Brainfood is a monthly, hands-on discussion with local entrepreneurs who share the secrets of their success. These monthly gatherings will help Miami startups and entrepreneurs understand the opportunities and challenges of launching and growing a business. Every participant will leave with a wealth of new ideas and key, practical advice to advancing one’s own entrepreneurial career. Brainfood is presented by Endeavor Miami and takes place at The LAB Miami in Wynwood, generally on the last Tuesday of each month.

This month, we welcome Carlos Ramirez. Carlos Ramirez is the CEO and founder of Powerful Yogurt, the pioneering company that designed the first dairy product for the needs of active men, making Powerful Yogurt a headlining story across the globe. The massive positive response from active women and men alike pushed the brand to fully evolve to an active lifestyles brand in late 2013.

Trained working alongside the most successful marketer of our time, Sergio Zyman, the former CMO of the Coca-Cola Company, Carlos has worked extensively in many North American, European, Asian, and Latin-American countries allowing him to gain a better understanding of the nuances that shape different cultures and their business implications in the region and within the US Market.

Lately, Carlos has focused on leading Powerful Yogurt, the company that launched the first yogurt specifically designed for men, and now focused on all natural, great tasting protein products for athletes and active lifestyles.

He wanted to go back to basics, to work with his hands. Today, Zak the Baker is a evidence of this simple desire. With a full service bakery and restaurant as well as wholesale distribution to multiple Wholefoods and endless local restaurants, Zak the Baker is undoubtedly a Miami staple. Hear first hand from the man behind the vision and his insights on entrepreneurship, business integrity, and the endless pursuit of your passion. (Oh and enjoy some delicious ZTB goodies first hand
