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 Dublin next February. Do you have what it takes? If so there is just one day left to apply!

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

Probiota 2020, held 10-12 February in Dublin, 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 translating the microbiome from clinical research into practice and products​, the growing scientific and commercial potential of fermented food​s and prebiotics, and the growth of gut health and gut friendly ingredients in mass-market foods and the FMCG environment​. In addition, there will be sessions looking at communication, engagement and education on microbiome topics​, plus a look at the skin microbiome and beauty market​, and a deep-dive into the gut-brain axis​.


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.
