YFood Investor Evening – Tuesday 13th March 2018

Tuesday 6th February

By YFood

We’re an interactive platform passionate about driving innovation in the Food Industry using technology by connecting and supporting the most brilliant minds in the food industry.

Brand new to 2018, we’re introducing the YFood Investor Evenings to bring together the top startups who are actively raising funding together with investors looking to support the next big thing in Food Tech. First up, join us on Tuesday 13th March.

Date: Tuesday 13th March

Time: 6-10pm

Location: citizenM Hotel

As the first pitching event series of its kind, this is a must attend for investors and fundraising startups within Food Tech. If you’re an investor these evenings will be the best way to talent scout the people and innovations set to change the food industry as well as some of the hottest new food and drink producers also looking to raise. If you’re a Food Tech startup or food and drink producer, this is your chance to meet a specially selected room of investors from the YFood network that are interested in Food Tech and could help take your business to the next level. So if you want to join the ranks of successful Food Tech startups that met their investors at YFood events – including Vita Mojo, who met their investor Elior and Nutrifix who met their investor Just Eat – apply now to secure your spot.

How does it work?

Taking place on Tuesday 13th March, expect a high energy and highly curated evening where a handful of the most exciting Food Tech startups in the YFood community will pitch to a room full of investors. Each startup will get 5 minutes to pitch followed by an audience Q&A and we’ll end the evening with innovative drinks, nibbles and a high energy networking session where attendees can meet each Food Tech and Food & Drink startup over drinks and demos. We curate the audience and spaces are very limited to create an intimate setting and ensure attendees make meaningful connections that will go on to support their current investment goals and objectives.
