Koepala is proud to be included as EIT Food introduces the 41 high-impact agri-food start-ups that will join the final stage of acceleration and benefit from world-class mentorship, programming, and resources.
The finalists were selected from more than 200 applicants from around the world – a strong start to the new EIT FAN programme.

Out of these, 41 high potential start-ups have been selected to join the EIT FAN programme.
