The Kitchen is the innovation hub at Aarhus University. It is also the incubation hub for teams in the Nordic countries: Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark. As a part of the EIT Food we are on a mission to transform Europe’s food system –making it better for people and the planet. We are in charge of the EIT Food Seedbed Incubator: a 6-month program that aims to reshape research discoveries into market-validated business propositions.

At the Kitchen we are helping to develop and commercialize leading–edge ideas -and technology. We are providing a community for entrepreneurial researchers, academics and students with access to our co-working space, providing training (workshops), development programmes and one-on-one business development sessions.
"In 2020, BettaSensing took part in the EIT Food Seedbed program in Aarhus, and this marked the beginning of a new era for the company. Before joining the Seedbed program, we had the idea of creating a spinout company, but the program really pushed us to turn the idea into action."
Dr. Noga Gal: CTO and Founder of BettaSensing
"It was great to take part in a program that is tailored around bringing business out of academia, as the workshops and expertise could be tailored to these challenges".

"I had complete control of the product, but at Seedbed I got a coach who helped me see the blind spots, and I was put in touch with market-leading companies that provided valuable feedback and did not mince words".
