Start-ups are given pride of place with a whole dedicated floor and side program of live pitching sessions, investor match-making and mentoring sessions taking place in the Start-Up Arena.

The exhibition in the Start-Up Arena gives early-stage companies the opportunity to have a dedicated, branded presence in the networking area for the duration of the event, highly visible and ideal for meetings. Companies have the chance to generate new connections among the investment and global food-tech community, and to be positioned as key innovators in the sector.
At Future Food-Tech San Francisco 2023, a total of 29 start-ups exhibited their dynamic solutions.
Accelerators introduce their cohorts and early to mid-stage food-tech companies pitch on the Start-Up Arena Stage in front of the global audience of influential investors, corporates and technology providers. They each have a few minutes to present their solution, highlighting the key innovative aspects of their technology and their go-to-market strategy, before they take questions from investors and accelerators.

Hear from our Start-Ups
“Future Food Tech is the number one event in the sector as far as I am concerned. It is my personal favorite not only because it provides the best possible exposure to professionals, investors and partners but also because they have the best team that puts in real effort to make the event impactful for you and your start-up.” Co-Founder and CEO, YO EGG
“The team from Future Food-Tech were professional and fun to work with! They gave an international platform to a young start-up from South Africa that resulted in good leads and great coverage. To date it was one of the better conferences attended and the pitch platform was awesome. I am looking forward to being at the next – hopefully in person!” CEO, MZANSI MEAT CO
“Speaking at the Future Food Tech Summit allowed Aqua Cultured Foods to showcase our fermentation based alternative seafood and increased our visibility exponentially. We have had many conversations with potential partners that I can directly tie to the opportunity that I received by participating in the summit.” Co-Founder and CEO, AQUA CULTURED FOODS
“Since our inception, we’ve exclusively chosen Future Food-Tech as the platform to launch each of our innovations, from our revolutionary animal-free muscle fibers in 2022, to our structurally precise whole-cut chicken breast in 2023, and soon our latest unveiling slated for 2024. Providing peer engagement, investor connections, and meaningful collaborations, the summit has been an essential catalyst in the Demolish Foods journey.” CEO, DEMOLISH FOODS
“Entering the Innovation Challenge at Future Food-Tech San Francisco (and emerging victorious!) provided COMET with the opportunity to introduce our Arrabina Prebiotic Dietary Fiber to a broader global audience, while also attaining industry recognition and validation.” CBO, COMET
“The conference was extremely helpful for our start-up to get exposure to the top corporates and investors looking for the latest innovation in the food space. We also had the opportunity to connect with industry experts that provided us great insights.
