Agri Food Startup Bootcamp I, II

EIT Food and Radar Tech aimed to support Ukrainian agri-food startups during a difficult period of full-scale war and help take them to the next level. Thanks to their participation in the program, participants had the opportunity to improve their solutions with experts, strengthen their business components, find clients, learn about opportunities to enter international markets, and ways to attract funding.


The Radar Tech team, together with EIT Food, launched a program consisting of two parts: a training component – Agri Food Startup Bootcamp and an offline event – Agri-Food Startup Meetup & Networking. During the Agri Food Startup Bootcamp, participants worked on developing their solutions, improved customer development, learned about support programs from the European Institute of Innovation and Technology EIT Food, opportunities for grants and investments for agri-food startups, and prepared to present their solutions to potential investors and partners.

Participants who successfully completed the first part of the program had the opportunity to present their solution at the offline event in Kyiv – Agri-Food Startup Meetup & Networking. The event consisted of three main parts: a panel discussion on how the war affected the agri-food sector in Ukraine, pitches from program participants, and a keynote speech by a speaker.
