The TFF Challenge is an annual collaborative prize competition that creates successful, socially responsible food and agriculture startups in all parts of the world.
The TFF Challenge calls on the next generation of changemakers from all parts of the world to create breakthrough solutions for sustainable and inclusive food systems. We are looking for locally-relevant solutions that address a wide range of pressing challenges across all parts of the food value chain—from production to distribution through to consumption and waste. By signing up, you will gain access to the TFF Digital Labs and have the chance to win travel, perks and cash prizes of up to USD 25,000.
Here’s what we’re looking for.
TFF commits to being on the cusp of new idea generation. Leverage breakthrough technologies and business models to create a project that is fresh and exciting, in a way that has never been seen before.
Implementation & scalability
Food security solutions require short, medium, and long-term goals that shouldn’t end when our competition is over. The project should be implementable, with scalability potential that puts sustainability first.
The project should stand out among the wide array of proposals we see, providing game-changing solutions and embodying a “wow” factor in terms of presentation so that it gets noticed in a noisy world of innovation and startups.
Being an innovator and an entrepreneur is one of the most exciting and rewarding things one can do. However, it is also a long and demanding journey. The team needs to demonstrate that it is able to withstand these challenges and deliver a solution that will improve lives.
