Ethan Holmes
Founder & CEO
Holmes Made Foods

At the age of 15, Shaker Heights native Ethan launched Holmes Made Foods LLC with his grandfather’s applesauce recipe and ambitious dreams of entrepreneurial success. From humble origins in his family’s kitchen – acquiring raw materials as Christmas gifts, Ethan built his brand of all-natural applesauce through sweat equity and persistence. Over the past 10+ years, Ethan has diligently grown his operations and distribution, earning capital infusions to fuel business growth, including a spot in the 2020 Chobani Incubator.

Ethan will join the panel discussion on Day 2.
