“Working with Foodback has allowed us to better position ourselves within the startup ecosystem. We believe that introducing ourselves to audiences in various fields, listening to other initiatives and consultants will have a guiding effect for us for the presentations we will make in the future and the events we will attend. We hope that with Foodback events, we will have the opportunity to expand our network and show ourselves to a wider audience.”

“Nanomic Biotechnology develops natural preservatives for food and agricultural products using microencapsulated herbal antimicrobials. Thanks to our communication that started with the sincere invitation of Foodback’s entire team, we have made significant improvements in both our market entry strategy and customer network in the food industry. Together with our work with Foodback mentors, we were able to obtain real data on how to more accurately convey the advantages of our technology to customers and adapt this information directly to our growth efforts.”

“We were incorporated during the EWA Program and focused on how we should work as a team. During the program, I saw that I communicated differently with every person I talked to and learned from them. The team really value the work we do at EWA, they focus on your business; examine your needs together and act accordingly.”

“Innovation, keeping up with the times, and staying up to date are all words that come to me when I think of the EWA Program. I can skip the daily agenda because I spend most of my time in the greenhouse and field. The EWA Program pulls me out of the field and prepares me for the daily agenda, technology, information, and communication. It’s a program in which we share information shoulder to shoulder and strengthen each other’s weaknesses. We shared all we did during the program. Being selected for EWA is a huge achievement, a program that pays off in every way.”
