Tomorrow’s heroes in Food & Agtech

A quick peek into the selection process of the pitching companies. Diversity was the keyword for the selection process. We looked for diversity in backgrounds of the team, geographic presence and themes. With the selection, we’re trying to give the audience a taste for a range of innovations happening across the food supply chain.

The selected companies each address unique opportunities to transform the industry. The focus of the first day is the farm – with coverage of tech topics such as crop biotech, digital trading, insuretech/fintech, animal health, vision technology and intelligent robotics. The companies come from the United States, Sweden, United Kingdom, Greece and Switzerland. The second day is centered around the downstream part of the food supply chain. It hosts companies from India, France, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Russia and Germany. Themes include logistics, B2B marketplaces, food as medicine, packaging, personalized nutrition and cell based protein.
