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 David Koretz. David Koretz is the Founder & CEO of Plum, the company delivering perfect wine by the glass in luxury homes and hotel rooms around the World.

Following the company’s acquisition, he served as the Corporate VP of Products & Strategy for Juniper’s security business.

David is the inventor of a dozen technology patents and was recognized as an innovator by Bloomberg BusinessWeek. Though he is technically (and spiritually) a college dropout, he has completed executive education at Harvard University, Stanford University and the Rochester Institute of Technology. David serves as Chairman of the Board of Adventive. He is a wine fanatic, aspiring nomad and lover of all things street food.

At 22, Zak Stern wasn’t living the life he wanted. Graduate school. Organic chemistry. Fluorescent lights. Life, he thought, was too short to be spent on the things in which he had no interest. 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
