Calling all food tech startups!
SPACE-F is looking for the most innovative solutions in food that are ready to take their startup to the next level and offer them the – equity-free – opportunity to explore opportunities with leading F&B corporates in Southeast Asia, connect with a wide VC & CVC network, and build their company into new markets while being supported by SPACE-F’s network, excellent food-lab resources, and dedicated mentors.
Are you ready to change the future of food, and take Southeast Asia by storm?
SPACE-F – FoodTech accelerator and incubator programs founded by Thai Union, the Thai National Innovation Agency, and Mahidol University – has opened applications for their third batch. The widespread success from Batch I and II, with multiple investments and partnerships realized, demonstrated the appetite for FoodTech solutions with both corporate partners and investors in the region. Batch III will build further on this success, focusing on creating further partnership, sales, and investment opportunities for its startups as well as building the leadership, localization and pitching skills to support their success.
The current COVID crisis has demonstrated the importance of both the FoodTech and startup ecosystem to Thailand as well as globally, as the region faces food security risks and economic downturn threatens to stifle innovation in the market. SPACE-F is dedicated to supporting FoodTech startups and innovation, by focusing on bringing cutting edge technology to Thailand.
In addition, SPACE-F’s non-equity model let you as a founder maintain full ownership of your ideas and products, and throughout the program, you will be connected with VCs, CVCs, and potential corporate partners to support you on the next step of your journey.
