Are you a startup from Europe developing tech solutions in the Food or Bioeconomy fields?

 

Secure growth, investment and exchange international contacts by working together with peers and active investors in our online collaborative programme. The programme includes online academy sessions, networking evening and discussions on 19th October 2020 and a one-day event that would take place on 20th October 2020 in Viborg, Denmark.

NB! Whether the event takes place or not depends on government regulations. In case it is still not allowed to travel and meet, we will substitute it with an online event or minimum a combination of live and online. Check this website for updates. You can note your preferences for online or onsite attendance upon registration to dkrasteva@techtour.com.
