"Exploring the full stack of food and ag digitization and highlighting the challenges and innovations in each layer of the stack.”
Announcing FOOD IT: The Full Stack For the fifth consecutive year, The Mixing Bowl presents FOOD IT, under the theme “The Full Stack.” Action-oriented entrepreneurs, industry players, investors, and representatives from leading global food and ag innovation hubs will gather at our event.
FOOD IT: “The Full Stack” will utilize the tech developers’ full stack model to assess the current digitization of food and agriculture, to identify areas of progress as well as near-term developments needed to overcome impasse.
The event will utilize four distinct elements to explore the progress of this development effort:
● Moderated Group Discussions on the Four Layers of the Stack - Physical Layer: Digitizing Food/Ag Physical World Data - Data Layer: Getting Food/Ag Data Flowing - App Layer: Doing Food/Ag Jobs with Tech - UI/UX Layer: Digitizing our Interface with Food
● The Blender Startup Pitch Competition with Food/AgTech start-ups once again vying to win the “Golden Blender Award” pitching to seasoned venture capitalists.
● Deep Dive Interactive Breakout Sessions providing participants the opportunity to take a deep dive together for collaborative discussion of timely topics related to food, agriculture and technology.
