Try Swedish is joining forces with UC Berkeley, SACC-SF/SV, UC Davis, and Oatly’s founder Björn Öste, to bridge the vibrant Nordic FoodTech community with top-tier investors and partners from Silicon Valley.

Join us for a 5-day summit designed to immerse game-changers from the Nordics and Silicon Valley dedicated to building a sustainable food system.

A cross-disciplinary screening committee will select the 20 most promising startups to attend the curated summit. Select companies will get the opportunity to pitch in front of U.S. food investors at the inauguration of UC Berkeley’s Nordic Center. The following days are filled with curated workshops and activities organized by top-tier accelerators, investors, and research institutes designed to introduce participating startups to the resources they need to scale successfully in the U.S. and beyond.

The Nordic Food Summit is solutions agnostic, meaning if your company can create a sustainable impact on the food system, we’re interested in hearing from you! It doesn’t matter if you’re a SaaS company designed to reduce food waste or the next plant-based burger. All startups must be Nordic to qualify.

We just closed our batch application process with select startups announced June 30th. The second batch application will reopen July 1st!
