Do not miss out on the currently ongoing UN World Food Forum Startup Innovation Award 2022

The WFF Startup Innovation Awards, powered by Extreme Tech Challenge (XTC), is a global competition that supports and recognizes innovators and entrepreneurs who are using technology to drive the sustainable transformation of agrifood systems in support of ending global hunger and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Awards aim to identify, elevate, and accelerate the growth of startups that show the greatest potential for a positive impact in transforming agrifood systems, aligned to one of four categories: better production, better nutrition, better environment, and better life, thanks to a strategic partnership with XTC, the world’s largest startup competition for entrepreneurs addressing global challenges. Innovative solutions connected with the topic of the 2022 World Food Forum, “Healthy Diets. Healthy Planet,” will get a special prize.

The eight finalist startups across the four betters will then give their pitches to the panel of judges in a session during the World Food Forum flagship event in October, with the final award for each of the categories of the “four betters” in relation to the 2022 theme: “Healthy Diets. Healthy Planet.”, as well as one overall winner, the WFF Award Innovator of the Year, to be delivered in the WFF Innovation Award Ceremony.
