The on-demand food tech space is on fire. Startups that deliver cooked meals, recipe kits and groceries at the tap of a button are cropping up constantly and many are raising $25M+ funding rounds left and right. Join us on May 27th for an inside look at how a handful of these startups operate.

Startups will share insights about their business models, technologies and lessons learned. Each startup will have 5 minutes to present followed by 5 minutes of audience Q&A

There will be networking, snacks from Munchery (https://munchery.com/), GoodMeal (https://www.goodmeal.com/), Ox Verte (https://www.oxverte.com/) and Sweetist (https://www.sweetist.co/) and drinks from Drizly (https://drizly.com/) before the presentations start at 7:30 and after they end.
