We are looking for presenters at our first Five on Food, taking place on Tuesday, May 18. Are you a farmer who tweets, an entrepreneur building a food-related website, a foodie using social media to connect with your food, or someone who is weaving together food and tech in a unique way? If so, we want to hear from you!
At our next Meetup, we will have five-minute presentations from five group members to hear about what they're working on and get their perspective on "food+tech" - what it means to them, how they define it in their work, and the potential it has to effect change. If you're interested in presenting, or know someone who would be, please send a description of your work, with a link or other reference, to me at elizabeth dot greene at sloan.mit.edu. The sooner, the better so that we can get the word out to the group about whose ideas will be featured this month!
The Food+Tech Meetup is the leading monthly event series for the food tech and innovation community. We are a group of innovators using technology and innovative business models to create a better future for food. Our monthly events bring entrepreneurs, executives, investors, chefs, farmers, producers, journalists, hackers, designers and more together to network, share best practices and explore the future of food.
The Food+Tech Meetup is organized by Food+Tech Connect in partnership with Holley Atkinson and Elizabeth McVay Greene.
