That’s a wrap on our 2023 autumn basecamp

Twelve startups joined the biotope basecamp this month! After three electrifying weeks, all founders pitched their innovative concept, approach and team to our board of investors at the Basecamp Summit.

That's a wrap on our 2023 autumn basecamp

The curtains have closed on the fourth edition of our biotope basecamp–three weeks of intense collaboration centered around refining ideas and concepts.

During the program, startups engaged in workshops, mentorship sessions, and collaborative activities, under the guidance of our industry experts. Each startup, in its unique way, advanced in its journey, contributing to the collective growth of the group.

The diverse range of participating startups reflects the ongoing efforts to navigate challenges within the agrifood sector. From agtech innovations to sustainable food production models, the projects displayed the potential for positive change within the industry.

Our sincere thanks go out to all our participants, mentors, and partners who made the autumn 2023 basecamp edition a resounding success. As we wrap up, we look forward to what’s next for this wonderful group of entrepreneurs.

Stay tuned for more updates on the experiences and outcomes of our Basecamp Summit.
