WHERE INVESTORS MEET FOOD & AGRI START-UPS
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 the partners initiated F&A Next in 2016. F&A Next is about thought leadership and connecting promising start-ups and scale-ups, to dedicated food & agtech investors and innovative corporates. Normally it includes one and a half day of networking, pitching and debating the dynamics in food and agriculture. Due to the Corona crisis the 2020 edition entails a free live webinar on May 13th.
If you are wholeheartedly committed to the need for innovation in Food & Agriculture than make sure you don’t miss out on the fifth edition on 13 May.
