The Indian FoodTech and the Opportunities in Food Industry in the country are as hot as Indian food right now. With multiple entries into this sector and the high amount of interest, this sector has generated in the public eye as well as the investor circle has made it impossible for it to stay away from making headlines every week. Gujarat and we Gujaratis are people who swear by our food and seeing the amount of buzz this industry has generated, we at HeadStart Ahmedabad have decided to invite a couple of experienced speakers, who have traveled through the journey of an entrepreneur in the FoodTech industry in our food-rich city and are still on their way to talk about their experiences, speak about their thoughts on the current system and where it is headed among other things.

We are happy to partner with Hungrito for this Startup Saturday. All the attendees will receive a free entry pass for the Hungrito Food Fest 3.0 happening on 10-13th Jan 2020.
