Virtual Venture Creation Weekend: Innovation in Food Sustainability

Brought to you by Cambridge Judge Business School

The Venture Creation Weekends (VCWs), managed and delivered by the Cambridge Judge Business School’s Entrepreneurship Centre, provide entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs with an exciting opportunity to develop, test and pitch business ideas in two-and-a-half days.

About the event

Do you want to transform the lives of people and make a positive impact on the environment? Do you have a novel idea or application in global food security? Are you interested in getting involved in entrepreneurship?

Kickstart your entrepreneurial career and start developing your venture at the next Venture Creation Weekend on 5-7 February 2021 delivered online by the Entrepreneurship Centre at Cambridge Judge Business School. It’s a chance to test your business ideas relevant to food security, build a team and pitch to investors within 50 hours!

Our current food system is under pressure and needs 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 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.

The upcoming Venture Creation Weekend is organised in partnership with Illumina and supported by Cambridge Food Security Forum. We recommend and encourage participants to focus on key areas around Food Security such as:

- food biotechnology

- big data and AI applications

- crop management

- genetic improvement in - livestock

- agrigenomics applications (i.e. food safety and conservation)

- nutrition

- food waste

Bring your novel ideas that help to eradicate poverty through technology, genomics and big data applications.
