We are delighted to welcome 30 start-ups for the first round of our Growing Food CPH programme.

All applicants have been carefully screened by a panel of Business Developers and Investment Managers from CAPNOVA and by Food Scientists from the three partner universities.

Louise Heiberg, Investment Manager and Food Specialist at CAPNOVA and part of the selection panel, is pleased to note that many of the start-ups selected for the programme follow the most significant food mega trends.

“We see three mega trends within food entrepreneurship right now which are “food tech”, “convenience food” and “health. All of these trends are well represented among the forthcoming participants in Growing Food CPH,” says Heiberg.

According to Heiberg, the mega trends within food and food tech are a good indication of the business and market potential of a start-up.

The selection panel have looked specifically for strategic fit, innovation and team/motivation when selecting the participants. Congratulations to the 30 entrepreneurs who will begin the food accelerator programme on 31 October. We are looking forward to meeting you all!
