FoodBytes pitch competition to feature several BoCo, NoCo firms

Several food and ag startup companies based in the Boulder Valley and Northern Colorado will participate in New York-based Rabobank’s FoodBytes Boulder!, a pitch competition and networking event that will be held in Boulder next month.

Ten finalist companies, including The Food Corridor in Fort Collins and Mad Agriculture in Boulder, will give five-minute pitches to a panel of expert judges, followed by a question-and-answer session with the audience.

The winning company will be invited to attend Rabobank’s Client Appreciation Events in December 2016 in New York City, which attracts C-suite representation from more than 300 of North America’s leading food, beverage and agribusiness companies. A Foodbytes competition recently was held in San Francisco and another is planned for November in Sydney, Australia.
