NutraIngredients is on the hunt for bright start-ups to join our Probiota Pioneers session and pitch their company and ideas to a room full of experts in Copenhagen next February. You have until midnight TONIGHT to apply!

Our team of editors and conference producers is on the hunt for innovative new start-ups who are changing the face of the microbiome space.

Probiota 2019, held 13-15 February in Copenhagen, aims to bridge the gaps between cutting-edge science, business strategy, and key regulatory developments in the microbiome, probiotic and prebiotic markets.

The three-day event will bring together CEOs, academics and top researchers for otherwise impossible networking opportunities, in addition to interactive presentations and debates that look to share new data, drive new science, boost business growth and aid product development in the rapidly growing and overlapping fields of probiotics, prebiotics and the microbiome.

On the agenda are engaging sessions on the scientific and commercial potential of the fermented foods​ trend, dealing with and making sense of big data and bioinformatics​ and the importance of our microbiome throughout life. ​In addition, there will be sessions looking at the latest scientific frontiers of research, ​plus a deep dive into the growing field of microbiome therapeutics and drug development​.

Calling all pioneering start-ups!

There has never been a better time to launch a microbiome or probiotic start-up. ​As major universities look to spin-out and license key discoveries, global food and pharma businesses open up venture funds and external innovation programmes and incubators to draw innovative entrepreneurs into their orbit – there are rich pickings for microbiome pioneers in search of money, experience and a global platform for their ideas.
