Rockstart provides a stage for AgriFood innovators at Seeds&Chips

Curious about the latest game-changing innovation within AgriFood?

From May 6-9, Seeds&Chips will host its yearly global food innovation summit in Milan, Italy. Over the course of four days, the summit attracts nearly 13,000 attendees from all over the world, with more than 350 companies and organizations and over 300 speakers showcasing and debating their cutting-edge solutions for a sustainable food system.

Rockstart AgriFood has been a proud partner since 2017 and continues to support this year’s summit. On May 8th at 16:00, we will host the Rockstart AgriFood Pitch Competition, where select entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to pitch their agrifood solution on the Arena stage to Rockstart AgriFood management, investors and domain experts. The winner will receive a fast-track to the final selection round of the Rockstart AgriFood program in Copenhagen, Denmark in mid-June. The winner of the competition will be announced during the official Seeds&Chips Award Ceremony on May 9th at 14:00.

On May 7th, Mark Durno, Director of Rockstart AgriFood, will be speaking at the “Seeding the Future of AgTech” conference session at 15:00 in Future Hall. Durno will be drawing on his experience as a farmer and agritech entrepreneur to comment on how we can and could drive towards a sustainable food future.

Rockstart AgriFood will be in attendance at the summit from May 7-9. Come find us at the Pitch Competition and meet Mark Durno, our CEO Rune Theill and AgriFood’s Program Manager Hanna Ollinen. We will also be hosting a casual meet-up immediately following the pitch event on May 8th at 17:00 for any conference attendees. We hope to see you there!
