Matchbox Fall 2021 — Food Ecosystems & Climate Action

Event info

Winter is coming, and we all know what that means — Matchbox is back! Once again, you’ll have the chance to meet up and connect with people from the entrepreneurship and innovation community.

At the core of the event are our Startup Experience students, who take the stage to give their final pitches in front of our expert judges. This year, the teams have been working on two topics: Food Ecosystem and Climate Change, so get ready for some new innovations in the field of sustainability!

In addition to the pitches, there will be a keynote talk and a chance to mingle with our students, judges, and the startup community.

So grab a cup of coffee, enjoy the show, join the conversation and prepare to get inspired!
