Open Innovation

We bring innovation and inspiration to your company through our corporate partnerships for open innovation.

In the food revolution, many companies want to open up to innovation and partners from outside their organization. A partnership with KitchenTown helps facilitate this new openness professionally and successfully. With our extensive startup network in Europe and the USA and the strong trust in the KitchenTown brand, we ensure better startup matches for your company both quantitatively and qualitatively. 

What sets us apart from other scouting providers? As experts in the food value chain, we always work early on based on concrete use cases, making a potential collaboration crystal clear from the start. This significantly increases the likelihood of a successful cooperation. We align milestones as early as possible to prevent differing expectations during the process. This principle applies whether your company is seeking startup investments, building its own accelerator, or engaging in R&D or sales collaborations.

Benefits of Collaboration

High Level
of Trust

Since 2014, we have been pioneers in the FoodTech scene, and our inquiries and ideas always find a receptive audience among startups.

Genuine Food

Our partnerships are so successful because we not only create connections but also engage in the implementation of ideas, prototypes, and pilot series.


Startup Network

KitchenTown already collaborates with hundreds of startups in the USA and Europe—not only with founders but also with technology experts.

Partnerships are 100% individual.

How would you like to collaborate with us? Want to keep the partnership confidential and behind the scenes? Looking for something very specific? No problem!

Acceleration in Implementation

We can always take it a step further: When collaboration with a startup gets really exciting, we can seamlessly transition from Innovation Sprints to becoming the implementation partner or developer of a joint solution.
