Virginia-based start-up Tablee is one of three company’s set to battle it out to be crowned as the inaugural winner of FCSI’s Start Me Up Innovation Award.
The firm will look to edge out German start-ups Print 2Taste and SCRAEGG to become the winner of the award at HostMilano.
From a long list of 27 start-up companies who entered products a group of judges decided on these three finalists.
On Sunday 20 October the 3d food printing system Procusini 4.0 from Print2Taste GmbH, the SCRAEGG Pro unit from SCRAEGG GmbH and the Tablee platform from Table will have one last chance to impress judges and make a final pitch to win the trophy.
The three finalists will have 10 minutes on stage each (five minutes to present, five minutes for Q&A) in a Shark Tank-style format.
The judges, consisting of five FCSI Professional member foodservice consultants from across the globe and the design director of Electrolux Professional, will then decide on a winner.
The winner will be announced later that evening at a special presentation during FCSI’s Sponsor Recognition Party at the ‘& Restaurant’ in Fiera Milano.
The Awards, sponsored by Electrolux Professional, were launched in May 2019 to celebrate innovative ideas from start-up businesses with the potential to have a game-changing impact on the commercial foodservice, beverage and laundry industry.
