Startup companies meet at Growing Food CPH in DTU Skylab and receive advice on development and businessplans from specialists.

Startup companies in the food area meet for the bootcamp Growing Food CPH which is held at DTU Skylab. At the event, the young entrepreneurs share experiences, pitch their ideas to companies and get tailor-made advice on development and business plans. This year, the event has a special focus on themes within sustainable food innovation.

"Sustainability is an important issue at the Growing Food event. We have set aside a whole day to focus on the sustainable elements of new foods or food technologies. A team of coaches will help the 50-60 students from a total of 32 startup companies prioritize the sustainability and safety aspects related to their products and help them develop their businesses, ”says DTU Foodlab manager Roberto Flore.

Over three days, the students at Growing Food event will pitch their startup companies for each other and participate in a mentoring process where former startup companies share their experience. On the second day, the program offers insight into challenges such as taking into account hygiene and risk factors in their production, attracting investments and developing their products and production processes.

Growing Food CPH is running in a collaboration between DTU, the University of Copenhagen and Spring Nordic. The program is free and aims to help start-up companies by combining food and food technology knowledge from two leading universities within food and food technology with investment and funding expertise from Spring Nordic.
