Are you interested in getting involved in entrepreneurship? Do you have a novel idea or application in Food Security that would transform the lives of many people?
Kickstart your entrepreneurial career and start developing your venture at the next Venture Creation Weekend on 15-17 March 2019 at Cambridge Judge Business School. It's a chance to test your business idea ideas relevant to food security, build a team and pitch to investors within 50 hours!
Our current food system is under pressure to change. While one in eight people suffers from malnutrition, one-third of the food produced in the world goes to waste. Meanwhile, the population continues to increase and the climate conditions for crop plants are changing.
Food security, as explained by the World Food Programme, is about the «availability and adequate access at all times to sufficient, safe, nutritious food to maintain a healthy and active life». In practice, this means that a vast range of parties are stakeholders. It ranges from those creating policies to those researching and creating the latest biotechnology in labs to entrepreneurs creating innovative ventures which tackle the wide range of problems facing the world.
For this Venture Creation Weekend we recommend that participants focus on six key areas of Food Security:
* Supply chain management
* Food waste
* Consumer behaviour
* Food biotechnology
* Agrigenomics application (i.e. food safety and conservation)
Standard ticket: £60
Student ticket: £40
15% early bird discount available until 18 February 2019.
