If they think your business has potential you could be invited to present live on stage to the Food Vision USA audience as part of our innovation, incubation and investment discussions on the opening night of the event. 

There you’ll share the stage with our panel of entrepreneurs, incubation and investment specialists to get feedback on your product, packaging and strategy. You'll also get the opportunity to ask questions and seek advice from the panel and from the Food Vision community.
