The Thought for Food (TFF) Global Challenge is calling on young innovators to develop creative, bold solutions to address one of the world’s most important challenges: how to feed 9+ billion people by 2050.
Ten finalist teams win an all-expenses paid trip to the TFF Global Summit in Zurich, Switzerland for a chance to pitch their ideas and earn up to $10,000 in seed investment. Along the way, students are supported through:
- Mentorship from world-class experts in food security and innovation.
- Design thinking skills taught through a state-of-the-art TFF Design Lab.
- Practical experience in business plan, pitch and strategy development, including a startup bootcamp and pre-accelerator program.
Past participants have brought forth novel innovations including nutritious food powder that reduces food waste; amobile, solar-powered dehydrator to preserve yields in developing countries; personal-sized vertical farmingappliances, solar powered egg production systems, accessible post-harvest technologies, living and hydroponic furniture, radically-engaging food & nutrition education programs and so much more.
The TFF Community welcomes innovation, creativity, and inspiration from any and all who are looking to create a better food system for our planet!
