In November we received an unexpected and amazing message. Venture Cup wanted to send our company to Silicon Valley, San Francisco, to represent Denmark and participate in the annual event: Cleantech Open. The global event find and fund the most promising cleantech startups in the world. We could not believe what an amazing opportunity this was!
We spend the following week preparing, packed our bags and jumped on plane to San Francisco. During the 3-day event we got to pitch in front of investors and network with influential people who also want to make the world a bit greener. We exchanged a lot of business cards with people that want to help us with product development, networking and sharing knowledge about the American food waste industry.
Furthermore we met with the Innovation Centre Denmark, who also wanted to help us develop our company. All in all, the trip resulted in many new contacts and opened a lot of possibilities for us in the future.
