About Us

Shelby Phillips, Principal

Shelby's expertise in food systems began at an early age working in his family's beer distribution business in SE Ohio. After getting his degree in Information Technology from RIT, he joined Accenture's global technology consulting team, deploying large scale technology projects in multiple industries. He then transitioned to the non-profit sector, first serving as Director of a Chicago food-systems education organization and then for Feeding America. It was in these roles he discovered the immense need of small businesses for an approachable solution to their technology needs. 

He is always looking to connect with startups, small and family owned businesses, and entrepreneurs in the food system.
