Our volunteer stories

Anna Pogrányi - Germany
“I volunteered in 2022 and 2023 at the HackSummit, and would do it again any day. Great conversations, inspiring people, amazing food and startups and a shared goal to bring innovation to life. There is no other event or community like this 🙌 Taking part and contributing to it is a real pleasure!”
Ioannis Laoudis - Greece

“As a student of food science, I was amazed to meet and connect with stakeholders of the entire food system like funders & ventures, start ups, novel-idea creators, other scientists, media influencers and many more. Attending the keynotes and pitches expanded my horizons on food sustainability. I would definitely recommend volunteering.”

Maude Jordan - Switzerland
“I volunteered in 2022 at the HackSummit and have wanted to return ever since. After the summit, thanks to another volunteer, I moved to my dream city, Amsterdam, to work with food! Overall the energy is so powerful and the connections are very precious. This is the opportunity to meet like-minded people and learn about the future of ClimateTech! There is plenty of time for you to enjoy the atmosphere while helping out.”
Elif Güngör Reis - Istanbul

“At the HackSummit I met so many inspiring people that not only taught me about cutting-edge solutions but also made me feel empowered to contribute meaningfully to a cause greater than myself. Volunteering for the HackSummit allows you to join a great community that helps to build a more sustainable future for our planet. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone passionate about food, climate, and technology to join as a volunteer."
