In the pursuit to find a healthier, but still tasty snack, Quentin Crawford is making jerky out of fish. The Good Jerky is providing meat lovers a chewy, smoky fish-based jerky that tastes like more traditional beef jerky. Stemming from Quentin’s interest of eating more health-conscious snacks, The Good Jerky has now opened new doors for Quentin in the startup space. Recently, The Good Jerky was accepted into MassChallenge, a global, zero-equity startup accelerator. Before that, The Good Jerky participated in Impact Ventures’ Local Entrepreneur Accelerator Program in April 2022.
