Techstars and GTEC train Food-Startups in how to build a startup from scratch in one weekend. I will be one of the Mentors there on Saturday morning.
Food is needed everywhere. Food is life. Technology is everywhere. Technology empowers life. It's in the intersection of these two paths that a prosperous future is achieved. On the one hand, the technology is improving on a daily basis, and different solutions in specific industries can be applied to others. We can envision a world where technology not only connects us but also helps us guarantee a greater life. On the other hand, we have a world population that is ever growing; we need to better prepare ourselves for the times ahead.
If we aim to have a brighter future than today, we should be working on the Future of Food, Today. If you reap what you sow, now is the time to start building!
If you feel like you could help build an idea, or you have a vision of how you can impact the future, Startup Weekend Berlin Food Edition is the place to go.
Food Access / Consumption - In this category, we are talking about solutions that tackle hunger. Not conscious starvation, but involuntary. Solutions that help guarantee that people have access to food.
Educational / Social - In this category, we are talking about solutions that can either educate or gather the power of social networks and connections.
Hardware / Big Data - In this category, we are looking for innovations in hardware. Innovative ways to work within the food industry that can have a positive impact for the future.
Food Waste / Renewal / Sustainability - According to the Food and Organisation of the United Nations, around 1.3 Billion Tonnes are wasted every year. This not only bad for the environment but a total waste of resources that could be allocated elsewhere, for people who need it the most.
Nutrition / Sports / Animal / Supplements - What we put inside our bodies define mostly how we feel. To work on solutions that tackle better nutrition and health is working on something that can impact, literally, billions of lives every day.
Supply Chain / Agro / Distribution - Not only should people be able to eat different things, but that same food should get to them, somehow. Distribution and the supply chain is how you work on innovative and lucrative ways of guaranteeing food to all people.
Food Production / Urban Farming / Agro - Any idea cooking up in your head? Any idea of new foods? Any idea on how to use space in the city to make more food?
B2B / Events /Services - Do you have any idea that you can serve existing businesses, or any service that you can serve consumers out there, this is the event to come to, and explore that idea.
