Testimonials from past editions of EFVF


"At the European Food Venture Forum 2013 I enjoyed the opportunity to meet people from various backgrounds in the food industry other than mine.  I was positively surprised by the innovative ideas and valuable pieces of advice gained at the forum through the networking and one2one meetings with investors and other entrepreneurs. This is what makes these forums work wonders!"
