Business Model Challenge | Food Edition

This edition of the Business Model Challenge (BMC) is part of our Food Ecosystem for sustainable food chains. For this 3-month incubator program, we will select 12 entrepreneurs who are taking the first steps in developing a product or service that aims to make the food chain more sustainable. During three training days and four masterclasses, you’ll develop your business plan, strengthen your skills and pilot your business in our network.  

What are we looking for?

This edition of the BMC is focused on the same themes as the Impact the Food Chain Accelerator program. We are looking for entrepreneurs and initiators with a potential revenue model, who work on:

  • Shorter and fairer chains and contribute to regenerative agriculture
  • Circular economy, contributing to targets like reduced food waste
  • Lower climate impact, for example with sustainable protein

As an entrepreneur you have the commitment and capacity to execute your plan. In three training days and four masterclasses you will work on your business model, strategy, and roadmap for the coming months.

What will you get?

  • Bring your venture to the next level with business growth techniques used by the 270+ startups we supported
  • Benefit from three training days and four masterclasses to work on your business model, strategy and roadmap for the coming months
  • Work with experts from Impact Hub and our program partners (see below) to grow your business

  • Better understand your target audience and customers
  • Learn how tell your story and position your brand
