From creating the iPod, the iPhone and Nest Learning Thermostat to investing in food and agtech… what can we learn from an entrepreneur and venture legend about investing in the technology transformation of food and agriculture?

At F&A Next in 2019, Tony shared his motivation: “The future of agriculture is going to be driven by the innovative small and midsize farmers. There are millions of family farms around the world and in countries with varying economic circumstances, which is why it is paramount for startups to think regional from the onset and to build products accordingly- designing differently for different areas around the world. By investing in these up-and-coming businesses, we can empower farmers with the tools to democratize the sector and drive real disruption and change.”

Tony is keen to revisit Wageningen and Adam Anders of Anterra Capital will question him on his latest investments in food & ag as well as his book Build, full of personal stories, advice and insights, to be released around F&A Next.
