Meet the Panelists:

We're thrilled to have the owners of @pomellaoakland join us for a panel discussion and share their insights on running a business in the Bay Area. Check out their website and learn more about their stories below:


Mica Talmor, originally from Israel, grew up in a family that expressed love through food. She attended culinary school in Israel and then went into pastry school at the California Culinary Academy. After graduation, she worked as a pastry chef at Eos in San Francisco and Grasshopper in Oakland. From 2005 to 2018, she operated Savoy Events, a renowned catering company. After that, she opened Ba-Bite in Oakland which received recognition from Food & Wine, Sunset, and KQED's "Check, Please!" In March 2020, Talmor launched Pomella, which combines the finest locally sourced California produce with the authentic flavors of the Middle East, North Africa, the Mediterranean, and Eastern Europe.



Salaams (they/them) has a passion for blending food and technology. With experience in bartending, catering, food truck operations, store management, and even running their own focaccia pop-up in Oakland, they've built a strong foundation in the food industry. They merged their dual passions at Pomella, orchestrating a successful Kickstarter campaign, and spearheaded tech, marketing, and e-commerce operations since 2020. They continue this work, offering their dual expertise to several restaurants in the Bay Area and beyond.




Don't miss this opportunity to be a part of a vibrant local community of entrepreneurs and learn from the best in the business. Space is limited, so secure your spot by RSVPing today.

Is this a kid-free event or are we allowed to bring our child? If not, I may not be able to make it. 


@Moreplease -- Thanks so much for asking! We definitely want to accommodate busy parents. You, and others, are more than welcome to bring your children -- we'll set up a little play area with some stuff to keep 'em busy & happy too. I was told we have some puzzles/coloring stuff 😃

I’m excited to meet and talk with Square personnel after only knowing  them on the phone

@LeahK I’m assuming that I’ll be receiving my Business Class round-trip tickets (Cincinnati to Oakland) from Square, soon.  Will you be sending those via email or snail mail?  Either works just fine for me! 🤪😂😉😎😝


Seriously, sounds like a lot of fun.

Can I bring a guest? 


Hi @Brenda_Generali! Great question. While we'd love to say yes to all additional guests, due to capacity limitations, the event is limited to those who have RSVP'd in advance.  That said, if your guest is a business partner, co-worker, or colleague -- go ahead and bring them along. The more the merrier! 🙏


Thanks so much for the question and we're looking forward to seeing you there!

Hi ! I am not sure it registered me. how would I know?

To confirm you are registered, if you are logged-in to the community, it will show "You are Going" in green. Hope this helps and can't wait to see you soon in Oakland 😊

I would to attend to unofficially represent San Francisco taxicab driving community and to describe the benefits this app has provided to these small businesses. 


So glad you're planning on joining us @TaxiBarry! There will be plenty of time to connect and network with folks in the small business community -- which is a perfect opportunity for you and others to build relationships, share tips, and discuss future opportunities 😎. See you next week!
