WELCOME TO THE FOODTECH TRACK
THE 2021 FOODTECH TRACK
4 amazing Foodtech startups presented their ventures at the 5th Coller Startup Competition Foodtech track.
1st place went to Sweet Victory
2nd place went to Yo-Egg
The Coller Startup Competition is launching a standalone vertical, which is focused on the future of food, and specifically - on replacing animals in the human food supply chain.
If you’re a Food-Tech entrepreneur, this is your shot at securing a $100k investment!
The Food Tech track is open to any early stage ventures established and operating in Israel.
The competition scope does NOT cover ventures which aide or facilitate the production of animals. This includes, but is not limited to:
Novel crops/proteins for animal feed
Probiotic treatments to replace antibiotics for farm animals
Tracking and monitoring systems for farm animals
Companies focused on such innovations will not be eligible to apply.
In addition to professional support and judging of the competition by the team that manages Jeremy Coller's Family Office Food Tech Investment Portfolio, support for this track would be in collaboration with The Good Food Institute.
