SCAPE supports the creation and development of job creating companies by offering an accelerator program which provides funding, education, and intense mentoring.
Amber Davis began New Hat Baking to fill the need for delicious gluten free products after her son was diagnosed with Aspergerís. New Hat Baking is the solution to healthy, nutritious gluten free baking mixes.
For health conscious consumers Davis created baking mixes with unmatched taste and texture by utilizing classic baking techniques. Davisís mixes use sorghum Ė a genus of grasses, one of which is raised for grain and made into flour. Please visit
