In Southern and Eastern Europe, there is a worrying gap between the number of innovative agrifood technologies developed at universities and the number of such technologies reaching the market. Our research shows that impactful startups with strong teams are better placed to commercialise promising agrifood solutions and transform our food system.
TeamUp is a 7-month programme that finds and matches up brilliant innovators with compatible and complementary profiles. TeamUp provides important tools and support to build your startup including expert guidance, world-class training, mentorship, networking and funding. These new teams will be nurtured to create strong co-founder relationships with aligned purpose and values.
- Have an impactful agrifood technology that tackles one of EIT Food’s Focus Areas;
- Want to bring your innovative solution to the market but struggle to commercialize it;
- Are passionate about entrepreneurship and want to develop and grow an impactful agrifood startup;
- Want to partner up with the right co-founder who would lead the business side of developing a startup.
The programme hopes to attract open-minded and committed people who are great problem solvers and team players. Diversity brings fresh perspectives so we’re looking for co-founders with different genders, ages, backgrounds and ethnicity who both have a passion for agrifood and building impactful startups that can improve our food system.
