We connect corporate executives with the right innovators in order to enable collaborations that deliver real business outcomes for both parties
We provide corporate executives with the necessary velocity and agility to work with smaller companies. With an extended network and knowledge of the ecosystem, we are able to identify the right innovators who can help your organization to bring your innovation agenda forward. We act as facilitators to make collaborations with entrepreneurs happen, and ensure they are mutually beneficial, through commercial partnership and investment arrangements.
At Forward Fooding, we believe there is no quick fix for innovation. Combining startups’ agility to innovate & validate proof of concepts with corporates’ infrastructure and expertise, allows putting better products into the hands of more consumers. With us, you embark on a journey towards helping you to forge meaningful collaborations with innovative companies as we believe this is the way forward to redesign and improve our food system.
By constantly interacting with other entrepreneurs, we came to the conclusion that there is no middle-ground when it comes to working with startups. We believe that corporates either acquire them or see them as strategic partners and work hand-in-hand with entrepreneurs towards a common goal.
