Startup Pitch, 24th March – Meet Successful Swiss FoodTech Founders hosted by Venturelab and JETRO

Eight foodtech startups will pitch in front of Japanese corporations and investors interested in food innovation in an upcoming webinar by VentureLab & JETRO.

On March 24, the Swiss Foodtech Startup Innovation Webinar will be held by Venturelab and the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO). Eight innovative foodtech startups have been selected to pitch their solutions ranging from agricultural systems for sustainability, meat alternatives or digital platforms to develop collaborative R&D projects or business collaboration with Japanese corporations. Furthermore, Michael Kleindl from Blue Horizon Ventures will give a keynote on the future of food, the strengths of the Swiss food ecosystem and its prospects.

As one of its activities, JETRO has launched a team that accelerates open innovation between Japanese companies and overseas startups. To address social problems within Japan, JETRO will bridge Japanese companies and overseas startups who have cutting-edge technologies and disruptive business strategies by offering them opportunities to attend Japanese exhibitions or dispatching Japanese delegations to the countries where there are advanced innovation ecosystems.
