Pitching at the Global Food Summit
One of the companies listed above has also been chosen as one of six international startups to pitch at the Global Food Summit for international recognition. Jamie Draves, President & CEO of Quinta Superfoods, will be representing the only Canadian company pitching at the Summit to a discerning international audience.
The six international startups (including Quinta Superfoods) scheduled to pitch were selected because they exemplify game-changing trends associated with urban lifestyles. Draves is presenting in the category of shifting diets. Each business will have three minutes for their pitch, followed by three minutes of questions from the audience. The audience will then cast their votes for the winner of the Global Food Summit People’s Choice Award 2019.
A Global Opportunity
Participation in the Global Food Summit provides an opportunity for Quinta Quinoa, Be Seen Be Safe and TRU-ID to enhance their knowledge, elevate their global profile, make valuable international connections and expand their reach into new markets. For Jamie Draves and Quinta Superfoods, international recognition for agri-food innovation is also in the cards.
Innovation Guelph is excited to provide this opportunity and grateful for the support of the City’s Economic Development Department and Global Affairs Canada to help make it happen.
