About our Keynote Speaker Angie Bastian, Co-Founder, Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP

Angie Bastian, entrepreneur, co-founder, and namesake of Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP, took a kernel of an idea and popped it into one of the fastest growing brands of natural popcorn.

As a means for creating a college fund for their children, she and husband Dan founded their snack company in their Mankato, MN, garage in 2001. On her entrepreneurial journey from Main Street to main stage, Angie grew a garage popcorn business into a global snack food leader – from being the official kettle corn of the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings to becoming an attractive private equity investment and eventually acquired by Conagra Brands.

Bastian is a dynamic speaker providing experience-driven insights on making a brand stand out, excelling in a competitive marketplace, surviving and thriving through a rebrand, and female leadership and empowerment. Her honest talks also discuss changes in the retail space, why authenticity matters, and how to weigh big marketing, sales, and branding decisions. Bastian motivates audiences to bring the fiery BOOMCHICKAPOP spirit alive in their own worlds.
