About the Program
Startupbootcamp FoodTech is based in Rome and supports companies innovating in the food industries as they scale globally.
Over the 3 months program, 10 selected high potential startups from across the globe will accelerate their companies with the help of our team of first-class entrepreneurs, investors, and partners. In 3 months, the selected teams will achieve what normally would take you 18 months. Sounds impossible… have a look at what our 320+ startup alumni have to say about us.
Direct access to key contacts in the industry, including:
- founders of SBC FoodTech and serial entrepreneurs Peter Kruger & Paolo Cuccia;
- 100+ mentors from startups & companies like Facebook, Amazon, Cisco, Google, Intel, Salesforce, Tetra Pak, The Fork (a Trip Advisor company) and many more;
- 1.000+ angels & VC’s like Accel, Endeit, Earlybird, Sunstone, Google VC, LVenture Group and many more.
We are looking for high growth tech startups operating within the segments of agriculture, restaurants, retail, substitutes, cooking and health.
New generations of increasingly low-cost technology hardware and software are challenging and disrupting the traditional models of producing, packaging, marketing, selling, delivering, securing, tracking, eating, recycling and even introducing new types of food substitutes.
