On 18-19 May, StartLife will welcome, once again, hundreds of the world’s leading tech startups, scale-ups, investors and corporates in food & agriculture at the annual F&A Next summit at Wageningen Campus, and online. As co-founder of this summit, StartLife looks forward bringing the agrifoodtech community together to connect, share insights and explore partnership opportunities aimed at building a sustainable food ecosystem and a better deal for all.

F&A Next is a two-day summit at Wageningen Campus that aims to accelerate innovation for a sustainable food & ag value chain. It’s the annual gathering of the world’s brightest minds in agrifoodtech who will debate industry challenges, share insights, discover new solutions and explore game-changing partnerships and investment opportunities.

Transformation of Global Food Systems

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

Renowned experts and industry leaders will share their thoughts and insights. 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.

In close collaboration with F&A Next, Agfunder will also present its annual European Investment Report.
