Nutreco Feed Tech Challenge Event programme

We selected 10 innovations to attend the Nutreco Feed Tech Challenge Event on 22 and 23 February 2017 in the Netherlands. The finalists have a diverse background and originate from North America, Asia, the Middle East and Europe.

The two-day event offers a dynamic ‘greenhouse & pressure cooker’ environment with workshops and interaction with the jury. The objective is to further nurture and enrich these high potential concepts. The 10 finalists are offered the opportunity to get trained in IP, storytelling and business modelling.

The event will be hosted at the Monastery Elsendael in Boxmeer, the Netherlands.
