It was a blast

The very first virtual Food Tech Invest Days took place on the 28th and 29th of January, 2021. Live from the Foodboom studio in Hamburg, Germany we discussed a broad variety of food tech topics. With over 70 speakers from all over the world, including the USA, the UK, China, and multiple European countries we managed to introduce a new and interactive conference format. Together with dfv Media Group and Lebensmittel Zeitung, our goal was to facilitate state-of-the-art knowledge exchange between industry leaders, investors, and startups. With over 350 attendees and two days of German and English content, we managed to achieve exactly that.
