Mike Fata & Greg Fleishman Launch Fata & Fleishman Free CPG Mentorship Platform
Updated: Aug 8
Fata & Fleishman Mentorship is a free entrepreneurial community support system created by Natural CPG founders Mike Fata and Greg Fleishman who themselves have spent over 20 years starting, ramping, and successfully exiting businesses.
"Greg and I are come from a place of service and giving back in a way that will help make the entrepreneurial journey easier, fulfilling, and impactful," said Mike Fata, founder, CEO, and chairman of Manitoba Harvest that exited to Tilray in 2020 for $419 million dollars.
"As founders and investors, we know firsthand what it's like to start a business from scratch, scale, and ultimately get to amazing outcomes," said Greg Fleishman, a CPG investor, founder, CEO, and board director at natural products companies that include Foodstirs, Once Upon a Farm, Lily's Sweets, Nuun, and Suja (all of which recently exited to Hershey's, Nestle, and Paine Schwartz Partners respectively).
One of the resources offered is a Startup Toolbox loaded with the critical information they use operating, investing, and serving on multiple boards.
This is not a Sales Funnel of any kind. It's all free and our best way of giving back.
