Are you changing the future of the restaurant ecosystem?
Restaurants aren’t just about food, nowadays aim to provide a unique and immersive experience. From Start-to-Table is an acceleration program for startups in the restaurant ecosystem focused on technology, innovation and customer experience.
“Food loves Tech”. Food is increasingly fond of technology. Truth is that restaurants need not only good food, but good location and good customers – and also tools to help manage human resources, waste, stocks, deliveries, orders, menus, reservations, payments, marketing and even customer reviews. We are talking about apps, software and robotics, in order to have ‘smart kitchens’, more efficient and sustainable restaurants, which are friendlier to customers and the planet. And we are also talking about products that are used in the kitchen and at the table, such as utensils and support materials. Any technology that modernizes the industry and helps free up time for those who work in the restaurant business – from chef to waiter – so they can focus on what is most important: the client and the food.
New sustainable F&B products
Real innovation often goes beyond technology. And if you think restaurants are “always the same”, it is because you don’t know those innovative entrepreneurs and projects that aim to put brand-new F&B products on the market, all the while having a positive impact on environmental, social, and economic sectors. This category is designed for those who seek to create products that make a difference locally and globally. We are looking for products with a responsible and sustainable nature, new ways of consuming and producing, or even alternative ingredients. Concepts that make us better people and make us do better — projects with a purpose and responsibility that inspire the community.
If you’re not sure whether or not your project fits our programme, don’t be afraid to ask.
