The Food & Retail Tech vertical is looking for disruptive technologies and business models in the food and retail tech area. With Switzerland’s history as a food innovation nation, it’s today the domicile of some of the world’s leading food companies. The Kickstart support program is seeking to reignite the radical food and retail innovation culture in a market with high growth potential.
Innovation bridges, Proof of concepts and other collaborations, are being built during the Kickstart program between later-stage startups and corporates. These projects will more often than not result in steps towards more sustainable food production, i.e. positive impact on the Climate and Health Crises we are facing today.
