Noga Gal from BettaSensing
Meet postdoc at The Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center at Aarhus University, Noga Gal, who is co-founder of Betta Sensing that has developed a flavour recognition technology for food and beverages.
According to Noga, you shouldn’t be so afraid to ask for help: “No one can do everything on their own, and everyone knows the feeling of not being good enough. We need to normalize this feeling and make it okay to ask questions or reach out when you need help.”
Giulia Francesca Marchetti from Connecting Grounds
A group of international students from Aarhus University, University of Southern Denmark and VIA University College are behind the sustainable startup Connecting Grounds that makes innovative food out of spent coffee grounds.
For co-founder, Giulia Francesca Marchetti, entrepreneurship is a path towards making a change in the world: “Entrepreneurship gives you the power and the opportunity to change things in the world that needs to be changed – and to really make a difference.”
