If you are a technology business or startup, FOOD+i can help you become more visible, improve or develop products, find financing and give you access to potential industrial partners that will help you to progress in terms of business management and launch new products and brands.

Meanwhile, Cluster is home to a number of entities that specialise in developing business opportunities and that focus on product development and assessing and marketing technology, which enables it to connect the three core components on which any innovation ecosystem is based.

Minds (generating ideas)
Management (converting opportunities into real businesses)
