Why FoodTech & AgTech?
Driven by shifts in eating habits, population growth, climate change, and failing soils, our food and agriculture industry face moonshot-sized challenges.
Agri-FoodTech entrepreneurs are stepping up to solve these problems by harnessing the most advanced technologies. From plant-based protein, gene-editing, drones and indoor farming to satellite imaging, precision farming, and computational biology, founders are driving radical transformation in our food and agriculture system with technology.
Agri-FoodTech investment continues to break records, reaching a staggering $20 billion in 2019, up more than 6X from 2012.
“One of the things that has helped accelerate agtech is AgFunder; you guys have been phenomenal in educating the market, both the VCs and the entrepreneurs, and I’m really thankful for the help you guys are bringing to this space.”
