A day in the life of... a food & drink startup entrepreneur

I always love hearing about food and drink startups, especially on Dragon's Den (or Shark Tank).

And with the rise of online subscription services in FMCG, food and drink brands are springing up all over the internet.

Could "the next big thing" be a Baby Boomer creation?

When you hear the word startup, chances are images of twenty-somethings hacking away at Macs in a loft office with an open floor plan spring to mind. And for good reason: head to sunny California, home to Silicon Valley and some of the today's prominent internet startups, and you're bound to find that a lot of startups do look something like this.

Venture capitalists still 'like' the consumer internet, but when it comes to where they're putting their money, consumer internet startups are competing harder for funding dollars.

According to Dow Jones VentureSource, the amount invested in consumer internet companies declined 42% in the first three quarters of 2012. Part of the reason: venture firms have been forced to take stock of their investments as consumer internet darlings like Facebook, Groupon and Zynga have been battered by the public markets.
