1/5

Solution

A worldwide application linking the nomadic workers on one side and food passionate people all over the world, willing to host the workers for meals. The nomadic worker finds not only delicious authentic meals, but a deeper understanding of the country he is visiting and most of all, the precious human contact and connections he is missing throughout his travels. The host gets to share his passion for food, meets new people to socialize with and get's paid by the Adidas company through the app by each meal.

It's a win win for both sides!

Which target group is your concept for?

As the nomadic workers travel often alone all over the world, we need to find them alternatives of corporate canteens. A nomadic worker always needs to plan his schedule on his own, so he may do the same with his meals now. Breakfast, snack, lunch or diner? He just has to contact the local hosts and find a compromise together.

How does digitization & connectivity create a unique eating experience?

For a nomadic worker, digitalization is one of the most essential tools. Shared economy platforms are facilitating his life as airbnb for accomodation or uber for transportation . He is using tinder to meet new people in the area, and other social medias to communicate daily with his friends. Having a system covering food in this shared economy mentality can only facilitate his life, as he can plan everything through his phone.

What other amazing features does your concept offer?

The fact of being able to discover a region as a local. Going to a restaurant is often too fancy and can give diametraly opposite experiences from what the local people are living. The nomadic worker is interested in the real life, real taste, real stories and experiences, to understand the cultures better.

What is the core idea behind your campus food experience?

The fact that you don't need an actual space. But that the power of individuals involved in big projects can be greater than having to plan and build something. People co-opperating together are making this project a win-win. And mostly, replicable anywhere in the world, without any specific requirements.
