Where everything is on the table.

Robust is a community for food founders to learn, grow, share, and collaborate in life and business.

The best people

Julia Child said that people who love to eat are the best people. Who can argue with that? 

We believe she means people who have vigorous and insatiable appetites–for delicious foods, yes, but really for everything.

They are curious seekers and intrepid consumers. They season boldly and salt aggressively. 
They want you to try a little of this, to grab a seat and help yourself, to stay for just one more. 

These are our people,
we are these people. 


Our Events

Robust HQ is currently in Amsterdam, but we have homes-away-from-home all over the world. We're building a community that gathers locally and globally, online and face-to-face. Our events are all about nourishing our appetites to connect over good food, sparking the intimate conversations, and hatching the wild plans that come together while we're at the table. 

Our flagship series is called 'FoodXDesign,' with a program that's focused on providing inspiration and insight to aspiring food entrepreneurs who are in the early stages of designing their business. We're collaborating with food founders who've built successful businesses to deliver no-BS real talk and hands-on learning though an ongoing series of discussions, workshops, and practical how-to content.

Stay tuned for supper clubs and pop-ups, and later this year, the launch of a roving co-working/co-lab space.


What's On

We're building a sweet program of events, workshops, and of course, epic feasts. Sign up for updates and follow us on Instagram and Facebook for invitations to the latest and greatest.

About Us

Launched originally as a newsletter in 2017, Robust has spent the past year fermenting and ripening into a blossoming community for food business founders and dreamers.

Because we sincerely believe that food is love, we are here for everyone, but as women, we are naturally leaning towards a 'ladies-first' (though certainly not a ladies-only) approach.

This means that our events are designed to shine a spotlight on female-led businesses and to gather together the baddest, raddest, smartest, and savviest women in food.
