Event description
The food system is broken, and it’s making us sick.

About this Event

The food system is broken, and it’s making us sick. From malnutrition to obesity, the way that food is produced, distributed and consumed needs to be more healthy, sustainable and fair.

We’re here to help people from diverse communities do that!

EIT Food, alongside YSYS - a leading Startup Community and Diversity and Inclusion Consultancy - and King’s Cross Impact Hub are bringing together the best minds from all corners of society to find solutions for the greatest food challenges of our time.

Join us on the evening of July 24th at King’s Cross Impact Hub for an inspiring and thought-provoking evening where we will bring together diverse innovators and technologists across Europe interested in the agriculture, fisheries, food and health sectors to discuss the latest tech trends and forge co-founder relationships.

This meetup is the first of two for our new Food Change Makers Programme, ahead of a Startup Weekend in October where participants will get the chance to pitch for funding and other kinds of support from the EIT Food community, King’s Cross Impact and YSYS.

We’ll explore the impact that the food system has on our health and well-being, hearing from a range of speakers including:
