Funding the FoodTech Revolution

Mar 12, 2017

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

Our global food systems are broken, and it will be creative and passionate entrepreneurs who advance the most innovative solutions. But who will fund these new revolutionaries of food and technology that often fall outside the domain of traditional venture capital? Rob Wilder, co-founder of ThinkFoodGroup and founder of FoodTech Angels will lead a panel of FoodTech innovators disrupting different parts of the food business: from urban agriculture to a marketplace for small culinary artisans. Their unique insights will enlighten entrepreneurs, investors, enthusiasts and activists.
