Techstars Startup Weekend Food is a full weekend-long experience where you will work with a team to create a prototype of your idea, validate your business model, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs. It's a place for creatives, entrepreneurs, designers, doers, thinkers, and dreamers to get together and create something incredible.

***If you have a Promo code, please click "Tickets" and add then click "Enter a Promo Code" at the top of the following page during checkout.***

What do you need to bring?

Lots of energy! You'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets.

In your teams, you won't be necessarily be working with people you already know, so lone rangers are especially welcome. If you're nervous about buying a ticket for yourself, please don't be! You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team!

Feel free to bring some tools of your trade. If you are a designer, then a sketch pad would be great. If you know how to program, then bring your notebook. Whatever you need to bring an idea to life!

The Theme: Food Tech

All ideas relating to the future of food are welcome. You are welcome to bring an idea for a startup or a project, but there is no requirement to do so - we'll help you find a team you love if you don't have any burning ideas of your own.

Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on.

The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP (minimum viable product), that fits the needs of your target customer.

We're looking for big, ambitious ideas!

You'll get expert feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely!

Categories

We are a breeding ground for the next big ideas in food...


Food Access / Consumption - In this category, we are talking about solutions that tackle hunger. Not conscious starvation, but involuntary. Solutions that help guarantee that people have access to food.

Food Production / AgroTech/ Urban Farming - Any idea cooking up in your head? Any idea of new foods? Any idea on how to use space in the city to make more food?


Educational / Social/ Marketing - In this category, we are talking about solutions that can either educate or gather the power of social networks and connections.

Hardware / Big Data - In this category, we are looking for innovations in hardware. Innovative ways to work within the food industry that can have a positive impact for the future.

Food Waste / Renewal / Sustainability - According to the Food and Organisation of the United Nations, around 1.3 Billion Tonnes are wasted every year. This not only bad for the environment but a total waste of resources that could be allocated elsewhere, for people who need it the most.

Nutrition / Sports / Animal / Supplements - What we put inside our bodies define mostly how we feel. To work on solutions that tackle better nutrition and health is working on something that can impact, literally, billions of lives every day.

Supply Chain / Agro / Distribution - Not only should people be able to eat different things, but that same food should get to them, somehow. Distribution and the supply chain is how you work on innovative and lucrative ways of guaranteeing food to all people.

B2B / Events /Services - Do you have any idea that you can serve existing businesses, or any service that you can serve consumers out there, this is the event to come to, and explore that idea.

Who should attend this event?

We want to make sure that we have a balanced composition of team members, so we are looking for participants with skills in the following categories:

Dreamer - You are full of ideas all the time. New bold ideas that can change the world! Developer - Your computer is in dark mode, you spend your weekends on StackOverflow, and you can spin up your team's prototype with your eyes closed.
Designer - You always carry a notebook with you, your IG is the envy of all your friends, and you turn discussions into something that visually tells your team's story.
Business expert - You know which Grab reward has the best point/value ratio, you sold candy to your school friends, and you'll help your team commercialise their vision.
Industry expert - When you order food, you know where it came from and how it got there. You can explain 'FDA', 'cloud kitchen', 'wet sales', and 'new protein' to your team, like you invented them.
