Let’s work together to make our food production more sustainable, secure and safe
FoodStarsNew alliance to foster innovative startups in smart farming across the globe Approximately one-third of all food produced for human consumption in the world is wasted. The food wasted in Europe alone would be enough to feed all the hungry people in the world two times over. In addition, agriculture is a major contributor to climate change, and by 2050 Earth will have an additional two billion people to feed.
New technologies give the rise to ideas around the way we grow and transport food. Consumers are paying more attention to where their meals are from. And we will need to find a way to pull off a daunting triple challenge: how to produce more food with less land and less water, at a lower cost. Entrepreneurs can help solve those issues.
FoodStars is an open innovation platform that support international startups and intrapreneurial innovations in agrifood sector both regionally and globally. Whether they are new technologies, production methods or business models; we seek innovations that not only improve productivity and efficiency, but also have a social, health and ecological impact.
The FoodStars platform brings together a broad coalition of research centers and institutes, corporates and hubs, government and trade agencies and last but not least investors and financial institutions. We believe everyone benefits from the cross-fertilisation within FoodStars.
The FoodStars accelerator also helps the selected companies to get their first clients, prepare them for trade and boost them to the level at which they become attractive for impact investors.
