Highlights from the Summit

Interviews at the Personalized Nutrition Innovation Summit

Why Attend

Hyperconnected and health-focused consumers are switching their purchasing
habits from a one-size-fits-all approach to personalized solutions, digital interfaces
and on-demand manufacturing. The nutrition space is no exception. With increasing
populations of ‘biohackers’ there is a demand to self quantify, pre-diagnose and
consume only foods designed to fit your daily macros. But how does the nutrition
industry provide for n=1?

The Personalized Nutrition Innovation Summit showcases disruptive start ups in
four main categories; biological data capture, data analysis, meal planning and
supplement providers.

From personalized vitamins to AI-driven meal planning, we will be discussing how to
develop scalable, trackable and attainable personalized nutrition solutions.

The summit brings together CEOs, CTOs, investors and founders across the nutrition
industry. Attend the summit to learn how to assess the current science behind
personalized nutrition, the tools to strengthen recommendations and the steps to
foster partnerships in this multidisciplinary ecosystem.

Talk to me about... my research:

Maintaining health and delaying disease onset result from complex interactions between genetic makeup, behavior, socioeconomic, and environmental factors.  Our multidisciplinary, international teams have been developing a more holistic approach to research summarized as systems nutrition. We use standard and emerging computational methods to integrate and analyze physiological data with measures of diet intake and physical activity while accounting for the built environment and genetic makeup.

I might qualify for the Tour de France but I would likely stop too often to take photos of scenery, competitors, and onlookers.

With our extensive marketing experience and strategy, your partnership with Kisaco Research will grant you a sponsorship package that is an extension and enhancement of your current marketing and branding efforts. We value your ROI and will work with you directly on your specific goals and targets – that’s why we take special care in finding the most relevant end-users to attend, so that your financial and resource investment is smartly allocated.
