Seedbed has been a superb experience and helped us validating our business model. We where able to use the wide network and had a great training on different topics as well as expert 1:1 Coachings. The EIT Food community is amazing and we are still benefiting from contacts and exchange. The support and expertise of the DIL Innovation Hub was and still is brilliant!  - Alica Lammerskitten & Dr. Oleksii Parniakov

“The EIT Food Seedbed Incubator was the ideal starting point for our startup journey. We received hands-on tools to validate our early stage business idea, create and test our first MVP in the market, and receive access to a wide network of professionals, entrepreneurs, and investors. Combined with the coaching of the DIL Innovation HUB, we benefited of being part of one of the most inspiring food startup ecosystems in Europe.”  - Robert Schreiber, Lukas Böcker, Gommaar D´Hulst

We are very grateful that EIT Food has already added a lot of value with their team's and network's expertise. We were already approached by investors and the intros we received might lead to some of our first pilot projects. - Marcus Lebesmühlbacher, Pinar Frank, 

We are constantly offering positions for Young Food-Tech Researchers and Master and Students (Innovation Management, Entrepreneurship, Economy) See
