Generation food is a movement that CENTERS entrepreneurship TO MOVE towards sustainable and healthy food for everyone.

A new generation of people is increasingly asking more and more questions about what we eat.

What's the deal with our food? What impact does food have on our daily lives, on the climate and what is its social impact?


How will we produce enough quality food for everyone?

Generation Food is not just for start-ups or young people. Generation Food has no set age, but we share a mission and a vision.


We are Generation Food.

We are farmers, students, entrepreneurs,... who want to build a better food future through entrepreneurship.

Generation Food is an innovative movement that helps people overcome challenges in nutrition 
and agriculture. But we can't do this alone, we need your help.
Below you will find an overview of our methods so that you can contribute to a Generation Food proof future!

We use innovation processes and various methodologies to activate entrepreneurs and equip them with the necessary basic skills and tools to develop successful businesses. We also want to support existing entrepreneurs and companies in innovation. Below you can find our offer.


In a masterclass you get the chance to refine your business model with the help of experts. A defined target group can then refine or acquire a certain expertise or skill under the guidance of those who know what they are doing.



During a forum we give the floor to a central speaker for a lecture. Another format consists of several experts entering into dialogue about a certain subject. Our forums take place both physically and digitally, so that you can also gain knowledge from home. 


Dinner hack

In a dinner hack, a group of creative minds comes together for a dinner to co-creatively solve a specific challenge, given by an entrepreneur. Each phase of the dinner (cooking – dining – cleaning) is linked to an aspect of the development and co-creation process. The aim is to bring together different stakeholders, including starting entrepreneurs and people who can help them. 



A makeathon is a variant of a hackathon, but with a focus on prototyping. It is an intense two-day process in which multidisciplinary teams work together to come up with a solution to a specific challenge. Together, the participants go from vague idea to testable concept.


During our Generation Food Summit, we look back and look forward to the activities of Generation Food. A moment - together with participants and experts - to capture the lessons learned, take a closer look at realizations and share experiences.

Generation Food is also active internationally. In Tanzania and Burkina Faso, our concepts are used to inspire and help young entrepreneurs in the agri-food sector convert their sustainable concept into a business model.
