Nutrition Hackathon #1

Your nutrition

business in 48 hours

03. - 05.07.2019

Food Tech Campus, Berlin

Do you have an idea you'd like to pursue in the world of Personalised Nutrition, but don't know where to start or whom to start with? The Nutrition Hackathon is a place where we bring together people from different backgrounds to come up with ideas or deal with challenges the market is facing.

During the last decades our diet was determined by the bulk products filled in the shelves of supermarkets. Today apps help us to eat more personalized and our diet becomes increasingly personal. What are the solutions required in this market - at retailers or in hospitals?


During the Hackathon, you will team up with other participants to develop solutions for Personalised Nutrition. In Only 48 hours, you will create a first prototype and receive validated feedback from a high-level cast of mentors and industry representatives.


Ready to shape the future of Personalised Nutrition

We are looking for food and nutrition experts (students or industry representatives), developers, business gurus and all-round nutrition enthusiasts to join us for 48 hours filled with problem solving and business creation that will contribute to shaping tomorrow’s world of nutrition.

Let's create a sustainable and science-based future of nutrition

NUTRITION HUB is Europe's leading community for food and nutrition experts. With the Nutrition Hackathon we want to ensure that innovation in food and nutrition is not only marketing-driven, but actually based on science and evidence.

How the Nutrition Hackathon works

You can join the Hackathon with or without bringing your own idea. On day one, you will team up in groups of 4 - 6 people with different backgrounds to form a versatile team. 

Throughout the following two days, your team will generate a solution for your assigned challenge, create a first prototype and validate it with first users. Our mentors will support you along the way.


After 48h, each group presents its final outcome. The audience will vote for the best solution based on three criteria: Solution, Business Model, Market Validation.

Why you should participate

✔️ Become part of a community of inspiring people in nutrition

✔️ Learn about leadership and entrepreneurship

✔️ Work on innovative solutions related to nutrition & health

✔️ Develop minimum viable products (MVP) using DESIGN SPRINTS

✔️ Connect to industry representatives and learn from others

We have limited capacity for the event of 30 people, so the mantra is: First come, first serve! Request your ticket now and join us for an inspiring event that will benefit you way beyond the 48 hours.

All tickets include food, beverages and materials for the 48 hours of the hackathon. The tickets do not include any hotel costs. If you need a place to stay in Berlin, please reach out to us. We will support you in finding a place in your preferred price category.
