Our Sustainable Food Systems program focuses on startups involved in the production, distribution, packaging and disposal of food, and offers specific networking events, mentors and curriculum dedicated to Food and Packaging. 

"Participating in EIT FAN run by MassChallenge in Switzerland was an amazing experience and a HUGE value add. They have offered us workshops run by experts as well as introductions and visits to several global corporates. We would not be able to access such great mentors if not for them and we would not be able to expand to the Swiss market so swiftly. Overall, we are extremely thankful for giving us an opportunity and taking us onto the program."
