About Us

Thought For Food®️  (TFF) is food and agriculture’s entrepreneurial innovation engine for impact. We work with more than 30,000 next-generation leaders from over 175 countries, and support them in generating and scaling breakthrough business ventures that build sustainable, inclusive, and resilient food systems.

 

Southeast Asia possesses the critical attributes to become a global frontrunner food and land-use innovation. The region’s tropical climate and biodiversity-rich ecosystems support the cultivation of diverse, nutritious crops all year-round, and it has a surging youth population and entrepreneurial ecosystem that is enabled by top universities, accelerators, and innovation hubs.
 
Thought For Food is launching the first TFF Regional Hub in Southeast Asia. Given the region’s importance for food and agricultural production and demand, and TFF’s strong existing presence through its on-the-ground network, Southeast Asia was chosen as the first TFF Regional Hub. TFF is currently undertaking a significant growth strategy through the establishment of TFF Hubs in key regions of the world.
