RocGrowth Candids will be at a new location beginning in February. The bi-monthly event is 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. March 6. It features regional entrepreneurs who share their personal stories and the lessons they’ve learned building successful businesses. This week’s guests are Zach Sarkis, cofounder of Flower City Solutions and NYHempLab, and The Perfect Granola founder Michele Liddle.

Alex Zapesochny, publisher of the Rochester Beacon, will lead the discussion where the guests will discuss why they consider the Finger Lakes to be an ideal location to start a company producing innovative granola bars and seize a leadership position in the burgeoning hemp industry.
