Founder & Entrepreneurs in Residence

Job description

We are open to applications from Berlin, Munich, Cologne, Paris, Amsterdam, London, and wider Europe. 

Who are we looking for?

Agriculture - the foundation of human nutrition - is exposed to climate change like no other industry. We need to create solutions that make agriculture resilient and future-proof. There are many ways to do that, e.g. risk management software for global agricultural supply chains, climate analytics, optimizing agronomic resource management, AI-powered wildfire insurance, agricultural robotics solutions, and many more.

We are looking for Technical  Entrepreneurs in Residence, with whom we can build companies to share the resilient agricultural production system of the future and not just enable farmers or stakeholders of agriculture with innovation to tackle their own challenges but have a positive impact on the climate.

As an Entrepreneur in Residence with FoodLabs, you will validate your existing venture idea, and with the support of our dedicated team, turn your concept into a venture-backed business with funding from FoodLabs.
