Behold, our jury for Startup Weekend Groningen FOOD! We took the time to carefully select a good jury. With different expertises and backgrounds we believe these are the right persons for our event.

Naresh Ramdjas


Naresh is a chef with a pinch of designership into his way of working. As a judge, he will focus on the design of the idea, but also on the gastronomic side of it.

Meet him on Facebook and Twitter.

Joszi Smeets


Joszi is a young woman, who wants to change the world with food. She is 26 years young, but already director of the Youth Food Movement. As a judge, she will focus on the sustainable side of the idea and the potential for impact it has.

Niels Willems


Niels knows all about entrepreneurship. As a coach, he has worked for Ahold and, so he knows all about business, but also knows how a lean startup should work.
