The program kick off with the Food 4 Future event in Bilbao, where startups connect with other innovative entrepreneurs and gain valuable insights into the latest trends and technologies in the FoodTech industry. Following this, the startups participate in mentoring sessions with their Growth Advisors to gather knowledge about the Dutch market and participate in a range of activities that help them to identify new opportunities and build strong connections with key industry players.
