EIT FOOD Innovation Prizes Demo Day – Stuttgart
EIT Food is Europe’s leading food innovation initiative, with the aim to create a sustainable and future-proof food sector. The Innovation Prize competition is a pan-European startup competition delivered by EIT Food to support a growing number of disruptive agrifood startups. The Innovation Prizes are awarded to entrepreneurs and early-stage startups to support the development of new products and services which can help transform our food system; making it healthier, more sustainable and more trusted. This year, there will be 17 different live finals occurring across Europe between June-September and each competition will allocate a total of €15,000 of prize funding (€10,000 for 1st place; €5000 for 2nd place). In addition to the cash prizes, participating startups will benefit from high quality pitch training and access to investors and our community of mentors and experts.
