Erik Frank had been in business for a year when he went to New Orleans’ Entrepreneur Week and got caught up in its fervor. Thousands wanted to see “the next big thing,” and Erik made himself a promise that his idea -- nutritional meals delivered to your job -- would be it. A year later, he pitched before celebrity judges and won $50,000 for his business, Your Nutrition Delivered.
