Purpose and goal
The purpose and goal has been to participate in the Go Global Foodtech program in Israel arranged by Vinnova and Innovation Center Denmark, The goal has been to better understand, develop and build capabiliteis for successful market introduction with simultaneous internationalization. The program also means opportunities for networking, sharing experiences and learning from other actors in the field.
Expected results and effects
The program has exceeded our expectations! We have had a packed program that has given us very useful insights into how companies and capital funds work and this has challenged in our way of thinking. The week has resulted in a sharper strategy and action plan forward, but also many contacts to work on with.
Planned approach and implementation
The program has covered visits to companies and private equity funds active in the Israeli start-up world. The visits have been interspersed with workshops and corporate pitches. The Loop factory has been represented by two people, the CEO and the marketing manager, which has been valuable in getting time together and sharing the impressions.
