About Us & Our Mission:
In 2009, Danielle started Food+Tech Connect as a blog to explore how we might use data and technology to improve the food system. Most people said she was crazy, but dozens of innovators from around the world reached out to tell her about their food and ag tech startups, investments and initiatives. So she began telling their stories and hosting events to connect them with each other.
Fast forward to today, and it’s clear she wasn’t crazy. We are at the beginning of the most radical transformation of our food industry since the Green Revolution. From sensors and software that help farmers improve margins, to crowdfunding platforms that help food artisans kick-start their business, to big data and apps that allow consumers to make more informed choices, there has been an explosion of startups who are disrupting how food is produced, distributed, sold and consumed. And we are honored to be a part of cataloguing and catalyzing this Food & Ag Tech Revolution.
We are Food+Tech Connect, the site of record and connector for the food tech sector. Through our news and analysis, online food business courses and events, we’re making it easier for food and agriculture startups to create a better future for food.
