AgriFood Tech Night
March 27 @ 18:00 - 21:00
There is no shortage of big problems facing humanity, especially in the FoodSystem. Environmental degradation, food waste, obesity, sugar-/protein-challenge and the need to feed 9 Bio people in a fair, healthy, sustainable manner, are just some challenges. However: there is a shortage of passionate/ambitious founders trying to solve these problems. More than ever, entrepreneurs building on “Frontier Technology” can truly change the world. There is incredible potential for private enterprises to make a real financial and societal impact. At this event jointly organized by Student Project House, Kickstart Accelerator, FoodHack & Founders Institute, you can meet and hear from entrepreneurs and experts tackling the major problems of humanity, and maybe even learn how you can start harnessing your passion and ambition to do the same.
