A Dragon’s Den For Food And Ag Startups
The title is certainly impressive. Manuel Gonzalez Guzman is managing director, global head of banking for food startup innovation and Rabobank’s Banking for Food Inspiration Centre.
Rabobank after all is one of the world’s largest banks with over $750 billion in assets, all of it focused on the food, agribusiness and beverage industry.
Equally impressive, the Yale PhD Gonsalez is founder of FoodBytes, a Rabobank-sponsored food business-pitching network that started in California in 2015 as a way to help disruptive food and agricultural businesses get started and do a professional pitch to venture capitalists.
