Synopsis:

A new-age food innovation and entrepreneurship platform that is open to anyone willing to create a sustainable world through food.

Challenge:

To create impact in the food and agro ecosystems by developing sustainable and disruptive solutions through the collaborative efforts of unlikely actors such as corporates, government and entrepreneurs

 

Transformation:

The program consisted of awareness raising events, mentorship & matchmaking for entrepreneurs, bootcamps and demo days. The main topics of the awareness raising events were food waste, food innovation, agriculture and food sustainability. Numerous experts and ventures presented their cases in order to create a spark in the sustainable food chain. The bootcamps were intense workshops/trainings with creative idea generation exercises for becoming a food entrepreneur. During the demo day, the ventures had a chance to introduce themselves, their products and the value they’re adding to the society to the participants and collect the necessary feedback they need as a venture. A seed funding with a total of 30.000€ as been given to two of the participating ventures as a result of the Jury voting.

 

Impact:

The intensive training during the bootcamps ensured that the participants acquired the necessary skill sets in order to turn their enterprises into sustainable and profitable businesses. Also, during the demo demo days and awareness raising events, diverse actors (universities, corporates, researches, entrepreneurs) are brought together to empower innovators and entrepreneurs to develop world-class solutions to societal challenges, and create growth.
