Meet amazing FoodTech startups next week at Startup Pitch Night!

Startup Pitch Night is upon us again! At Silicon Valley Forum, we love finding opportunities to highlight emerging technology and cool new companies–and at each session of Startup Pitch Night, we get to do just that. Our upcoming Pitch Night has the tastiest topic we could think of: FoodTech!

Meet the startups below – then head on over to the event page to reserve your ticket. Seats are extremely limited, so don’t wait to sign up!

Special thank-you to our host and partner K&L Gates LLP.


Aromyx is digitizing taste and scent.  IMAGINE: Push a button and get 100 recipes to make Coca-Cola. That are CHEAPER. That are HEALTHIER.  This has been the holy grail for at least a decade in several huge industries, and the world’s largest companies are paying us for it now.  Aromyx sells a patent-protected, portable platform that puts all the human olfactory and taste receptors onto a disposable biosensor, in a stable and cost-effective way.

Conscious Essentials: everyday nutrition fueling you to become the best version of yourself: Protein Milkshake’s formulation of gluten free, low carb, low calorie, non-GMO, naturally sweetened & ethically sourced Premium Protein Powders are created to work with both our heath goals & our cravings- not against them.

Friendly Reminders allows users to create and share their culinary profiles. A recent survey we conducted showed that half of all people have at least one dietary restriction, and nearly everyone has at least a couple foods they don’t like. For some, being able to share which foods you dislike can save you from the awkwardness of having to tell a friend you don’t like the meal they’ve prepare. For others, alerting friends of allergies can mean the difference between a fun night out and a trip to the ER. Either way we want to take the stress out of dining out.


Jarly is the easiest and most fun way to discover and try the best baked goods in your city. We are a subscription box service for local fresh baked goods. Every month we deliver a box filled with a new local artisan baker’s best treats. Jarly is like the Birchbox for fresh baked goods, and through our platform we connect local bakeries to customers seeking treats made in their communities.


MiraculeX is developing the best tasting and healthiest sweeteners – Protein Sweeteners – using ag-tech with molecular biology to finally allow people to enjoy the foods they crave without worry.

The Town Kitchen is a community-driven food business; we deliver chef-crafted lunches and employ low-income youth. We source, craft, and deliver locally-sourced lunch through a community of growers, food makers, chefs and youth. Our vision is to create community through local food; a community where low-income Oakland youth can shine; a community where we will introduce under-served youth to talented chefs & start-up entrepreneurs so they have the skills and network to pursue their future.




Zipmesh picks up the freshest food ever from local farmers and artisans – not from the big store next door. Select from a wide variety of produce and artisan foods from local farms and producers; we pick up produce from each farm and artisan, pack it to order, and deliver daily to your doorstep.
