HortiHeroes UnConference | 26th September 2019
Hosted by Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship in Rotterdam

To be able to feed 9 billion people worldwide in 2050, food production will have to increase by at least 50%. This requires optimal use of robotics, data, chain management and artificial intelligence. The flower industry also offers many possibilities for collaboration and other concepts which offer added value, such as a dose happiness and fresh air, in other words a positive effect on the body and the mind.

But how do we reach that point? Which small steps can we take in our day-to-day life? Where can we collaborate in and out of the Food & Flower industry? Which data is available, and how can you make smart use of it? What do you share and what don’t you? It’s now or never: we need to continue learning, from students, start-ups, and established companies. Collaboration and digitalisation is no longer a choice but a must.

On 26th September 2019 we’re organising the second HortiHeroes UnConference, where we bring entrepreneurs, experts, high potentials from the Food & Flower industry, students and techies together to learn as much as possible from each other.

What is an UnConference?

An UnConference consists of a series of short, targeted parallel sessions, organised by the participants themselves and planned together on the day itself to fill the programme. It’s a chance to experience a wide range of subjects in an intimate setting, to forge new relationships, and to share experience and expertise that can immediately benefit you. Have a look at the aftermovie of the first HortiHeroes UnConference.

Who will be there?

We’ve already invited some interesting participants. These people have walked the path of entrepreneurship, (open) innovation or digital transformation and are ready to share their knowledge and experiences. These ambassadors of the Unconference will attend, will bring along their network and will, depending on the demand from the participants, do a session as speaker. Roland Breedveld will be our lead facilitator, he's a passionate and creative business builder and talent developer in both start-up and multinational companies with 15 years of experience.
