The Vitafoods Venture Den is an informal, fast-paced business pitch competition to give nutrition and health and wellness start-ups the opportunity to pitch to investors. Hosted by Nutrition Capital Network, the Venture Den is an annual staple of the Vitafoods Centre Stage and we went behind the scenes to get the scoop. Starting on Monday, before Vitafoods Europe 2017 even began, we cornered Grant Ferrier, CEO of NCN and Chairman of the NCN Investor Meeting Europe, for the all the backstage information. We then found Grant again as the Venture Den concluded to find out who won and where they’ll go from here. To hear more from Grant, check out his blog on vitafoodsinsights.com about the challenges facing nutraceutical start-ups.
