Matchmaking, networking and discovering

Finding customers for seaweed (products) is still a challenge. That’s why this first event is dedicated to match-making with market parties, investors and stakeholders. Prior to the Pitch Event we will organize a Match-Making event for you as members. You can join a 1-hour session in which you can meet up to 4 companies in a speed date of 15 minutes. These are large(r) companies (market players), investors or financial service providers. Further infomation on how to sign up will be send soon.

Seaweed food or packaging pitches

The Seaweed Innovation Challenge is connecting market and investors. Until 30th of April food and packaging innovators from all over the world can send in their pitch, with innovative packaging and food solutions made of seaweed. You can also submit in your innovative solution!

The finalists will pitch and present their solution on the event, to the jury that consists of the Colruyt Group, Nestle, DS Smith and Amazon. Influental and large companies that can open doors, and present opportunities for businesses to grow. 

Networking & marketplace experience

After the Pitch Event there will be ample opportunity to mingle and network with the pitchers, jury companies and the other attendees of the event. All organised around some stands where the pitchers (and limited members) can present their seaweed based products, for a market-place experience. And because the venue will be directly on the beach, there is plenty of inspiration for new ideas and new connections!

We are very much looking forward of welcoming you there!
