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. 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 the fifth edition on 13 & 14 May.

IMPACT OF INNOVATION IN THE FOOD & AG VALUE CHAIN
The fifth edition of F&A Next will address the Impact of Innovation in the Food & Ag value chain. What major changes have we identified since the first edition of F&A Next in 2016? And to what degree have expectations on precision ag farming, data driven solutions, alternative proteins, personalized nutrition and digitization materialized. What about farmers? Are they embracing technology as we all anticipated or is the disconnect between entrepreneur and farmers on relevant solutions still an obstacle. Are Food & Ag corporates truly innovating to become more sustainable?
Last edition zoomed in on the intersection of Innovation and Sustainability. It attracted 572 representatives from corporations, banks, venture capitalists and other investors, and of course, food and agri startups. Read the full report of 2019 here. At the next edition we will briefly look back but foremost we will look forward and debate what is ahead of us.
