Join researchers from Wageningen University and Research, and panelists Jonas von den Driesch (SHIFT Invest), Pieter van der Meche (Rabo Investments), and Rogier Pieterse (Pymwymic) for an enlightening meetup that delves into the world of agri-food investment! Our session will dive into the decision-making processes that guide investors in allocating resources within the agri-food sector. During this meetup, you can expect to:   

  • gain some understanding of investor and entrepreneur behavior as we explore the multifaceted considerations that shape decision-making in the agri-food sector. Learn about the critical factors, and the risks to assess, especially concerning non-tech agri-food investment.  
  • learn interactively through dynamic discussions driven by data and case studies on non-tech agri-food investment. Interactive polling and Q&A will further engage participants to voice their thoughts and seek clarifications in real time.  

The Impact Investors Science Lab is part of the Cleverfood project funded by the European Union. The project aims to transform the European food system in line with EU policies, specifically the EU Food 2030 Policy Framework, the Farm to Fork Strategy, and the Fit for 55 Package. The project mobilizes citizens, ranging from young to old, to farmers and investors, to researchers and policymakers, to create a more plant-based and resilient food system, using Policy and Living Labs and Pan-European multi-actor and public engagement mechanisms.
