SXSW 2020

Accelerating the Future of Food

This session will bring leadership of The Food Foundry (a food industry focused accelerator program in Chicago) together with three of our successful start-up companies to talk about the future of food. Specifically we will address the areas that are primed for opportunity (local food access, new/leaner distribution approaches, how restaurants are evolving, etc.) and what roles start-ups, investors, and corporate partners have in driving this change. We'll focus specifically on how deliberately combining resources of an experienced corporate entity, funding capital, and a human-centered design approach creates a new paradigm for working with start-ups to drive this change.
