EWA Pitch presentations Day

21 October 2023 @ 11:00 - 17:00 CEST

EWA | Empowering Women in Agrifood is a 6-months entrepreneurial program, promoted by EIT Food and tailored to create business solutions for specific challenges in agrifood. More precisely, 130 talented female entrepreneurs from 13 countries with modest to moderate innovation rates (Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Portugal, Spain and Turkey) have access to training, mentoring, business coaching and networking opportunities.
The Italian program of EWA has been jointly organized by EIT Food, Europe’s leading food innovation initiative, whose main goal is to make the agrifood system more sustainable, healthy and reliable, and the Future Food Institute. 10 Italian women entrepreneurs with projects in the agri-food sector have been followed by experienced mentors in a 6-month program that led them to realize their innovative ideas.

After the training, mentoring and networking opportunities offered, the Pitch Day has just arrived: a pitching competition that will award the two best Italian ideas with a prize of €10.000 and €5.000, respectively.
