This Venture Creation Weekend (VCW) is for students, postdocs, professional and researchers working on emerging technologies and innovations in Food Security who are interested in learning how to translate their ideas into ventures as part of a startup team.

Our current food system is under pressure to change. While one in eight people suffers from malnutrition, one third of the food produced in the world goes to waste. Meanwhile, the population continues to increase and the climate conditions for crop plants are changing.

Food Security, as explained by the World Food Programme, is about the “availability and adequate access at all times to sufficient, safe, nutritious food to maintain a healthy and active life”. In practice this means that a vast range of parties are stakeholders. It ranges from those creating policies to those researching and creating the latest biotechnology in labs to entrepreneurs creating innovative ventures which tackle the wide range of problems facing the world.

The Entrepreneurship Centre is working in partnership with the Cambridge Food Security Forum to offer aspiring entrepreneurs, innovators and researchers the chance to explore opportunities, ideas and applications in Food Security.

For this Venture Creation Weekend we recommend that participants focus on five key areas of Food Security:

- Supply chain management - Nutrition - Food waste - Consumer behaviour

Date: 23-25 March 2018 (followed by closing dinner) Tickets: Standard – £60; Student – £25
