Alchemist Microenterprise Academy (AMA) is a 12-week business training course that teaches the basics of starting a food business. Topics covered range from financial literacy and legal business structures to recipe development and safe food handling.
With additional in-kind support from Capsity Inc., (a California Benefit Corporation) we created a business plan for the successful creation of Alchemy Kitchen.
In 2019, our Marketing Intern, Hasan Ridha, created a project Marketing Plan which can be accessed here.
In May 2018, Alchemist CDC was awarded the Promise Zone Financial Institutions Partnership Opportunity grant. This grant, made up of contributions from 10 different financial institutions, is kickstarting the Alchemy Kitchen program.
