Computomics joined the Rising Food Stars network!
The RisingFoodStars (RFS) Network allows successful, impactful agrifood scaleups to scale to the next level in becoming the international gamechangers of the future. The programme addresses early scaleups that are past the ideation phase, have paying customers and are poised for significant growth and global scale.
EIT Food’s RisingFoodStars Association has opened its doors to 16 European agtech and foodtech impactful scaleups. Being part of the network, these young companies will receive guidance and support from already established industry leaders. They will also expand their view and access to scaling up, internationalisation and investments.
It has been a rigorous selection process, where the Advisory Committee had to choose between more than 70 strong candidates from 25 countries. Part of the selection criteria was the ability of these companies to use technology in order to quickly reply to the food sector challenges. Scalability is also a key element in the development of every new organisation. The selected few will be rewarded for their ability to anticipate where their industry is going and most importantly, they will be creating the future of agtech and foodtech.
As part of the RisingFoodStars group the newly accepted scaleups will have the opportunity to network with large agrifood companies, educational and research organisations within EIT Food. After going through a scan of their strengths and gaps, they will be supported by mentors on the most difficult steps of their scaleup journey. End goal would be achieving better, sustainable and healthier food value chain.
