Have you got an idea that could change the way we eat or produce food? Would you like to help achieve a more sustainable food system? We're inviting aspiring and early stage entrepreneurs to test their venture ideas, build a team and pitch to investors in 50 hours!
The Entrepreneurship Centre is delighted to be working in partnership with the Cambridge Food Security Forum to explore innovative ideas in Food Security. For this Venture Creation Weekend (VCW) we recommend that participants focus on five key areas:
- Supply chain management
- Food waste
- Consumer behaviour
- Food biotechnology
With the world’s population expected to grow to more than nine billion by 2050, ninety per cent of the extra food needed will need to come from intensification of current production. Trying to solve these problems and others posed by population increase over the coming years will be the challenge for participants on the next VCW.
