EIT Food is a European consortium focusing on entrepreneurship and innovation in the food industry. EIT Food Community members are world-class players in the global food sphere: more than 50 partners from major companies, study centers, and universities in 13 countries. Starting with this year, Techcelerator proudly joined this initiative, representing Romania.

On the 12th of September, we are organizing together The Innovation Prizes 2019, a competition for agri-food start-ups with prizes up to 10.000  euros coming from EIT. For the Regional Innovation Scheme Demo Day were selected 10 start-ups, each one willing to solve a major challenge from this industry.

These start-ups are:

Taraba Virtuala







Let it green!


HeatUp Project


The first place prize consists of 10.000 euros, while the second one counts 5.000 euros. Moreover, startups compete for trainings, mentorship and access to further rounds of investment.  Startups have to come with an innovative solution to a ”real” measurable problem, bringing added value to the agri-food industry. Besides that, they should have a sustainable business model, a good understanding of the ecosystem and of course, a strong team behind the idea.

We are wishing all of them good luck! May the best idea to rock the stage and win the prize.

See you on the 12th of September at TechHub Bucharest to meet the short listed founders and the winners. Register for free here
