The Thought For Food (TFF) Foundation has invited innovators and entrepreneurs for TFF Challenge to build better food systems.

Over the 7-week TFF Challenge period, participants have access to curated, on-demand digital content, weekly entrepreneurship and topic-related live sessions that feature industry leaders and successful startups, as well 24/7 support.

All participants gain access to the TFF Digital Labs, a first-of-its-kind digital collaboration and startup acceleration platform that provides on-demand access to leading industry experts, resources, and interactive experiences.

The platform supports innovators at every stage of their journey – from idea through to incorporated startup – and has recently undergone a significant upgrade to offer increased functionality and world-class content that covers critical topics related to entrepreneurship, leadership, systems thinking and innovation.

Utilize This Offer

The TFF Foundation is the world’s pioneer and leader in next-gen innovation and startup acceleration for food and agriculture.

They work with more than 30,000 next-generation leaders from over 175 countries, empowering them to generate and scale breakthrough business ventures that build sustainable, inclusive, and resilient food systems.

TFF is looking for diverse solutions that positively impact every part of our food system in every region of the world. In addition, participants can opt-in to take part in certain partner-led tracks for the chance to win additional prizes and perks.

The TFF Challenge is open to all kinds of solutions – beyond and inclusive of the Topical Tracks.

The 2021 TFF Challenge is world’s largest and most diverse agri-food-tech innovation challenge:
a) Open to purpose-driven innovators at all stages (idea through to incorporated startup).
b) Seeking diverse solutions to the question: “How do we feed 10bn people on a hotter planet?”
c) Cash prizes, industry connections, global exposure, plus free access to world-class resources and experts on the TFF Digital Labs.

Participants should join as teams of 2-5 with members between the ages of 18-40.

Final pitch submissions are due on May 28th.

Teams are encouraged to sign up to the TFF Challenge as early as possible, so they can benefit from TFF’s programs and community and gain a leading edge in winning this year’s prizes.

In mid-June, 10 Teams will be selected as Global Finalists. They will then take part in the TFF Academy™, a three-month startup acceleration program that TFF has built for startup success in the food and agricultural sector.
