THE FOURTH EDITION
F&A NEXT 2019
F&A Next is an initiative by Rabobank, Wageningen University & Research, Anterra Capital and StartLife, collectively believing that innovation will be key to sustainably feed future generations. Disruptive innovation in itself is not enough; it also needs to be implemented and transformed into tangible applications. Entrepreneurs are needed for their drive, investors for their belief and corporates for their mass impact. To stimulate innovation and entrepreneurship we launched F&A Next in 2016.
Edition 2019 will cover what technologies and policies are needed to create sustainable food systems embraced by the full value chain and the public. What does it take for input companies, farmers and CPG’s to implement these technologies and how will such innovation be funded? Transformation to sustainable foodsystems requires cooperation between suppliers and off-takers, between farmers and processors. Sustainability and innovation are very closely connected. Startups and scale-ups can contribute to food and agriculture corporates in their approach to sustainability by offering smart propositions, piloting and open innovation.
F&A Next is about thought leadership and connecting promising startups/ scaleups, to dedicated food & agtech investors and innovative corporates. It includes one and a half day of networking, pitching and debating the dynamics in food and agriculture. If you are wholeheartedly committed to the need for innovation in Food & Agriculture than make sure you don’t miss out on this 4th edition of F&A next!
