Meet the team
The right connections at the right moment in time. We know that it’s not more that corporates and investors are looking for – it’s a better fit, tailored to meet your priorities and needs. For startups, it’s access to those who can help them scale their businesses efficiently and effectively. Whether you’re an innovation-mature corporate or an innovation-curious investor, a seed or Series D startup, we aim to help those who are equipped to drive sustainable innovation find the right partners to achieve their goals.
Since 2015, FoodBytes! has galvanized collaboration across the value chain, from partnerships, to investments and acquisitions, to R&D and piloting. What began as a pitch competition evolved into a membership-driven program in 2021 and 2022 and has grown into a more inclusive and accessible online platform, launched in February 2023. Through our new online connections hub, we aim to exponentially scale our reach and impact.
