Empowering the next generation of food security innovators

“This is the most connected generation of our entire history”, said Bianca Costa, an inspiring Brazilian student I met (from many others!) today at Tropentag. In a fun interview in Portuguese, she explained that this is the reason why Though for Food believes young entrepreneurs will change the world, or rather, the food production world.


As an ambassador of this NGO, Bianca came to Tropentag to tell young innovators that their ideas have value. More precisely, $10,000. Thought for Food awards young entrepreneurs working for food security, not only in Germany but all over the world. Interested? So be prepared: the TFF Challenge opens on October 16th. The best ideas will receive access to digital labs, mentoring programs and network opportunities, besides the final prize: $2500, $5000 and $10,000 to kick off their projects.

Although there are several platforms designed to launch and scale-up youth-led innovative solutions, the merit of TFF lies on prizing two financially underestimated targets: young people and rural areas. Bianca was surprised to see so many young people working with a purpose and eager to transform rural areas with technology and innovation at Tropentag. So much that she ran out of flyers! No worries, Bianca, Tropentag is over but we still have next year – in Prague! See you all there.


How to sustainably feed 10 billion people? If you have an idea, follow TFF Challenge and have the chance to make your idea a reality.
