On June 10, over 200 people gathered at PARISOMA to get a taste of this future at Think&Act. Representatives from ten startups innovating across all parts of the food supply chain spoke about their work and demoed products ranging from logistics solutions to prepared foods to food preparation robots. A diverse crowd of entrepreneurs, chefs, freelancers and foodies gathered to discuss and sample the offerings. When PARISOMA reached capacity, many continued to wait in line until the crowd thinned and they were allowed admittance. The commitment demonstrated by these latecomers - who were all able to get in eventually, we are happy to report - points to the intensity of the food startup scene. Food entrepreneurs stand out as some of the most passionate members of the startup community, a space that is notably intense to begin with.
