This month, XTC is transforming food systems one startup at a time! We took part in the world's largest youth-led movement to transform agri-food systems: The World Food Forum (WFF). We helped them create their first ever innovation startup awards and worked with some truly incredible companies! Not to mention the high profile masterclass with Kimbal Musk, Bill Tai, XTC startup founders and more. On World Food Day, our very own Victoria gave a fascinating talk on tech in agri-food systems.

October Highlights
