About Andrew and Laid Superfood
Earlier this year, Sisters-based Laird Superfood launched a successful Initial Public Offering (IPO), raising over $58 million. Why did this company choose to launch their global products from a small town in Oregon? Why did they decide to go public? Tune in as we hear from Andrew McCormick and the story of how this startup has grown into one of the biggest companies in Central Oregon. Caprielle Lewis, EDCO’s Sisters Area Director will moderate the discussion.
