“We look forward to featuring the food, fashion and finance industries that make New York City a thriving global hub,” said Brian Choi, a founding member of The Well and CEO of The Food Institute.  “This is the second event we are hosting as we share thoughtful programming with unique partners like Hugo Boss, ALOHA, Cipriani Foods (De Medici Imports) and the investment community.”  

Stephan Born, CEO and President for the Americas of Hugo Boss Fashions, Inc. stated: “We’re excited to welcome The Well network and friends to our flagship New York store to coincide with the Spring Summer campaign.  These entrepreneurs, investors and advisors supporting innovators represent what it means to be a BOSS as they inspire those on their journey. This means they need to adapt to new circumstances and an ever-changing environment to be changemakers in their field.”  

James Arndt, General Manager at the Hugo Boss flagship store in NYC further commented: “Our store in Columbus Circle has recently won an award on our partnerships and collaborations with other companies and brands. This event on May 16 with The Well and The Food Institute is a perfect example of the innovative approach we’ve taken to strengthen the Hugo Boss brand across industries like food and beverage.” 

Featured panelists include food and beverage entrepreneurs like Brad Charron, Chairman and CEO of ALOHA, an award-winning B Corporation and Climate Neutral Certified plant-based protein brand.  “The timing of this event is ideal to highlight our recent $68 million investment from SEMCAP Food & Nutrition, a growth equity investment firm focused on identifying and helping build the purpose-driven food and nutrition brands of the future, which completely aligns with our mission to make simple, nutritious food accessible to everyone, while using our business as a force for good. We look forward to sharing our brand’s journey and these key partnerships with the investment community.Charron said.  Prior to ALOHA, Charron held senior roles at Chobani, Under Armour, Lucky Brand and other companies.
