Welcome to NextGen Purpose

We are a global network of food people.

A never-ending feast of knowledge and resources for entrepreneurs, restaurant owners, chefs, physicians, founders, farmers, scientists, researchers and eaters. We offer business nutrients and connection.

Don’t wait to be seated. If you have anything to do with food, you should have something to do with us.

We started off as NextGen Chef. A place for food professionals to connect. Then we did what we helped our members to do. We grew. Now we’re NextGen Purpose, a global network of food people.

Our video-sharing platform will be here soon. We’re impatiently excited.

The Podcast

Essential Ingredients is the creation of Justine Reichman, and features a multi-generational group of startup founders, thought leaders and change makers who discuss the importance of building businesses from concept to purpose that directly align to your purpose and mission and support a regenerative future for and from people to planet. Topics include "building a business to support your purpose" to "global issues challenging our farming, production and supply chain" to "telling your story" and "developing consistent branding". In addition to the conversation segments, these talks also conduct interviews with serial entrepreneurs, new founders and industry experts. Interested in sharing your story, email us to participate in our next podcast. Production of the podcast is held in Larkspur, California.

"I love working with Storee Studio. Over the years Emile has created the most beautiful designs for Dashel, for all aspects of our marketing. She is commercial too: Our recent website re-design was carried out on time and on budget. I'd recommend them highly."
Catherine,

Emile is without a doubt the best designer I’ve ever worked with. We have actually become friends and I find her not only extraordinarily talented, but focused, professional and able to understand and implement what I need quickly...."

"I cannot recommend Storee Studio highly enough.  I worked with Emile to launch Loskey at the end of 2018.  Not only is she extremely knowledgable in Shopify, but she also has an excellent design aesthetic..."
