Siggi Hilmarsson (Founder and CEO, The Nordic Milk & Skyr Corp.) Tells His Story

Dissatisfied in his corporate job, homesick, and hungry for skyr (the thick, not-too-sugary, protein-packed yogurt of his native Iceland), Siggi Hilmarsson decided to make it himself. Through trial and error, he developed the recipe at home and started giving away samples in 2005. Siggi's Skyr yogurt has since developed a cult following at Whole Foods and other retailers, and the company now employs 10 people. Hilmarsson will begin The Right Ingredients by sharing his inspiring story of his company's growth, fueled by passion, focus, and a knack for creating the right product for the time and place.

Networking Reception


SIGGI HILMARSSON is the founder of Siggi's Yogurt. He grew up in Reykjavík, Iceland, but in his mid-twenties got restless and moved to New York for graduate school. After reluctantly flirting with a corporate career, he set out to produce some skyr, the thick, strained yogurt that was a staple of his diet in Iceland. Having found the yogurt selection in American grocery much too sweet for his tastes, he resolved to make his own skyr yogurt low in sugar. Despite this handicap, the skyr found some followers at first in New York, but has since gained a slight following nationwide. Recently Hilmarsson also started making filmjolk, a Swedish style drinkable yogurt. Aside from his understandable enthusiasm for coagulation and understated typography, Hilmarsson enjoys reading and avoiding traffic. The entrepreneur will share his inspirational story in an opening speak at "The Right Ingredients." Click here to read an Inc. interview called "The Sugar Made Him Do It." Siggi's on Facebook

Throughout their years living in New York City, DOUGLAS QUINT and BRYAN PETROFF had always focused on their respective careers-until they got themselves a Big Gay Ice Cream Truck, which debuted in June 2009 at Brooklyn Pride. With a playful attitude, they spin a new take on old-school soft-serve by creating fun and one-of-a-kind cover cream toppings and frozen treats. The pair have been featured on The Rachel Ray Show and programs on the Cooking Channel, Sundance Channel, and Food Network. Currently, the truck is on the streets of New York for its third season, and in summer 2011, the Huge Gay Ice Cream Shop opened in the heart of the East Village, bringing rainbow sprinkles and caramelized bacon cover cream sandwiches to cover cream lovers year-round. With this expansion, Quint and Petroff have rechristened the company Huge Gay Ice Cream to encompass all of its ventures. @BigGayIceCream
