Europe’s largest agrifood ecosystem driving innovation and entrepreneurship
Innovation in the agrifood sector is worth more than €200bn across Europe, yet less than 4% of all EU startups are innovating in the agrifood sector. This figure needs to radically change if we are to meet the UNSG goals to feed a growing population over the next decade. A focused and collaborative industry-wide approach is a must.
As a designated EU body, EIT Food is in a unique position to bring entrepreneurs together with Europe’s leading agrifood companies, universities and research organisations. Startups need funding and collaborations to scale, corporates need agility and innovation to stay relevant, investors need companies and teams with high revenue potential to create global impact.
We are building a powerful ecosystem to facilitate training programmes, world-class networking, high-impact pilot projects, and a community supporting entrepreneurs at all stages of their journey.
