FoodBytes!, the startup business competition by Rabobank, a global food and agribusiness bank, is returning to New York City and startups can apply now through August 12.
The pitch competition, to take place on October 18, gives 20 pre-selected startups the chance of winning one of three awards: the Judges’ Choice Award, the People’s Choice Award, and the Highly Commended Award.
“FoodBytes! played a key role in our launch activities this year,” said Bruce Rasa, CEO and founder of AgVoice, a mobile voice-interaction service designed to improve sustainability, productivity, and accuracy of data captured in the agriculture/food supply chain and the winner of the 2017 FoodBytes! New York Judges Choice Award. “The valuable insights we received at FoodBytes! helped us identify the right strategies for our business growth and enabled us to improve our product to meet the needs of the new generation of ag professionals embracing smart technology.”
