Bienvenidos and Welkom to our softlanding program. An initiative that will enable meaningful connections between the Spanish and the Dutch food ecosystems. Through this program, not only do we support Spanish startups' expansion by facilitating their international scaling, but also, Dutch industry leaders will be given a chance to learn about new, ground-breaking food tech solutions. It's a win-win for everyone!

About the event

The program is aimed at supporting startups and small companies seeking to scale to the Netherlands in identifying the right product-market fit and thus successfully establishing your business in the Dutch foodtech market.
Ranging from internationalization strategy workshops and Dutch business culture sessions, to visiting industry leaders, 1-on-1 matchmaking sessions and an alumni program, Desafía will provide access to the world's most innovative technological ecosystems.

The program will be developed by Unknown, an early-stage venture capital and business development firm. A Venture Engine® supporting founders and industry leaders to successfully bring innovations to the market. With their fresh approach, they deliver venture success, lining up the industry and creating a pool of solutions ready to be adopted by the market..
