F&A NEXT

thought leadership & making connections

WHERE INVESTORS MEET FOOD & AGRI STARTUPS

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 two days of networking, pitching and debating the dynamics in food and agriculture.

If you are wholeheartedly committed to the need for innovation in Food & Agriculture then make sure not to miss out on the 7th F&A Next edition on 18-19 May, 2022.

TRANSFORMATION OF GLOBAL FOOD SYSTEMS

F&A Next 2022 is on its way! And we look forward to welcoming you in person again on Wageningen Campus, or online.

In our 7th edition, we will zoom in on the Transformation of Global Food Systems. The urgency to radically transform our food chain grows. Capital investment in food & ag is growing at an unprecedented rate. But are investments in technology and innovative business models contributing to a more sustainable food production? What is still needed to meet the SDGs in 2030?

Special topics include the role of impact investors, the need for regenerative farming, the future of proteins, food & ag innovation in emerging markets and changing consumer preferences. F&A Next and Agfunder will also present the annual European Investment Report, the most comprehensive foodtech and agtech investment research out there. And of course, we will showcase some of the most promising food and agtech startups, the Next Heroes in Food & Agtech.
