Food System Mix&Match 2022

Want to get to know impactful startups and future startups in Sustainable Food System? Looking for ways to join the Food System transformation? Come and get to know like-minded people in Maria01 on May 25th, 2022.
Welcome to the Food System Mix&Match event!

To sustain (and increase) the population of planet Earth, radical new innovations are needed in Food System. Food System includes everything from the sources of fresh water, production, and distribution of the food as well as influencing the system with lifestyles and even politics.

In this event, we focus on the opportunities that startups create in the Food System. The event's goal is to present you with several ways to contribute to the Food System with startup companies. We will have over a dozen teams presenting how they address the sustainability problems by entrepreneurship. These teams explain how their mission can be contributed to.

Are you a startup team looking to get acquainted with future team member / employee prospects with specific skills and talent you will be needing? Come and meet professionals interested in working within the food system scene and maybe in your startup. See registration links below.
