The THRIVE Europe Challenge, part of THRIVE's Global Initiative, solves problems of the European agrifood industry, accelerates the development of the ecosystem, and selects the best start-ups and scale-ups for investment and global recognition.




The Challenge is closely aligned with the European Green Deal which seeks to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050 while doubling down on achieving the UN SDG’s.

THRIVE will award one winning startup the THRIVE Europe Challenge Award, brand exposure, access to the THRIVE ecosystem, and a spot at pitch finals for the award-winning THRIVE VIII Accelerator Program (March-June 2022) which includes investment and pitching at the THRIVE | Forbes Demo Day.

The winner will receive automatic acceptance as an Extreme Tech Challenge (XTC) finalist, and THRIVE will also present two recognition awards:
