On 26 May, StartLife and partners welcome the world’s leading tech startups, scale-ups, investors and corporates in food & agriculture at the annual F&A Next summit. In addition to the opportunity to virtually meet and greet all the participants, the summit will showcase some of the most promising food and agtech startups, and moderate debates between leading experts on developments in zero carbon, proteins, scaling agrifood innovation and the digitization of the F&A industry.
For the sixth consecutive year, StartLife helps bring together entrepreneurs, investors and corporates from all over the world to facilitate connection and partnerships to build a sustainable food system and a better deal for all. With innovation in food and agriculture having gained momentum over the past few years, this year’s edition of F&A Next zooms in on the impact of innovation; what innovations truly disrupted our food system.
Last year, global investments in food and agtech were up over 30% to some USD 26 bln. It cannot be denied that the pandemic has had an influence, but has it irrevocably changed ‘life as we know it’? On 26 May, the impact of innovation on the agrifood industry and consumer behavior will be discussed by top executives and opinion leaders, including
- Rob Leclerc (Agfunder),
- Maarten Bosch (Mosa Meat),
- Kees Kruythoff (Livekindly Collective),
- Hadar Sutovsky (ICL),
- Prof. Dr. Ken Giller (Wageningen University & Research),
- Prof. Dr. Barbara Baarsma (Rabobank).
Also eight promising food and agtech startups, known as the Next Heroes in Food & Agtech, will present themselves. And participants of F&A Next are among the first to receive Agfunder’s European Agrifoodtech Investing Report 2021.
F&A Next 2021 is enabled by StartLife, Rabobank, Anterra Capital, Wageningen University & Research and Foodvalley NL, with the support of Invest-NL, ICL, EIT Food Rising Stars and numerous network partners. With well over 1,100 participants and a high viewer rating (8.8/10) for its first virtual edition last year, the second virtual edition promises to be another great success.
