The Technical University of Delft, Menzis, Rabobank, Wageningen UR and WWF launch a new investment fund for innovative companies in the food industry.
The companies announced the opening of SHIFT Invest this October. The fund is aimed at Dutch companies in food, agro, health and clean and bio based technologies.
The founders hope to answer in the growing need for innovation in these sectors, as part of the growing attention for new food concepts and (mal)nutrition. They feel the Netherlands can play a leading role in the creation of new business, being a strong knowledge based country with many existing companies in the field.
