FoodHack is a community-driven platform that inspires, highlights and connects food entrepreneurs and innovators.
We scout emerging startups from across the globe and provide a platform to launch their products, and highlight breaking trends in the industry for hungry entrepreneurs to get inspired.
Our roots lie in events. Today, thanks to our ambassadors we're able to connect food industry entrepreneurs, executives and insiders across the globe through meetups and our summit.
We believe bold ideas, entrepreneurship and innovation are needed to fix it.READ Manifesto ✊
FoodHack began as a way for co-founders Camille and Arman to tie their two passions, food and entrepreneurship, together and connect with innovative startups in their local ecosystem.
But soon interest in these community meetups grew and entrepreneurs in neighbouring cities caught word of the events. City by city, FoodHack meetups started to grow led by a team of passionate ambassadors.
To keep people informed about upcoming events, we started a weekly newsletter. To fill in the gaps, we highlighted some of the top food industry news from the week, in a tone of voice our audience would enjoy.
Soon we had grown a passionate community of entrepreneurs and innovators across the globe, from Zurich to Zambia, following FoodHack online through our newsletter and podcasts or offline at one of our meetup chapters or annual summit.
We've seen first hand the impact that one good introduction can make to an entrepreneurs career. Or how listening to struggles of a fellow founder can help you overcome your own. We know the importance of surrounding yourself with the right network.
And we want FoodHack to be community to help you along with your food entrepreneurial ventures.

So, you want to become an entrepreneur?
Or shake things up in the company you work for?
You’re curious. Hungry.
You’ve got big ideas.
And you want to make a difference.
You’re just in time. Because our food system needs you.
In the 50s, the green revolution changed the way we ate.
Crops grew faster and yields improved.
Food became accessible and affordable.
We stopped going to bed hungry.
And convenience freed us from hours in the kitchen.
Soon the world got smaller.
Food traveled further and needed to last longer.
Many of us forgot how to prepare the dishes we grew up eating.
And we overindulged until it made us ill.
Abundance taught us how to waste.
While others couldn’t afford the food they harvested.
Our global food system is broken.
We believe that bold ideas, entrepreneurship and collaboration can fix it.
And FoodHack is looking for people who dare to make change happen.
And that’s you. It’s time to start the next revolution.
Become part of a global community.
Find your crowd. Build a team.
Share, learn, grow.
Connect across borders.
Keep one eye on the trends
and the other on the mavericks.
Challenge the status quo.
Always stay ahead of the curve.
Take the first step.
Take initiative. Take risks.
Try something new.
Make mistakes, pick yourself up and start again.
But you don't have to do it alone.
Let’s create a greener, healthier, tastier world together,
one bite at a time.
