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.
