    Int. summit where agrifoodtech startups, investors & corporates meet & share innovation insights. 24 & 25 May 2023

    F&A Next is an initiative by Wageningen University & Research, Rabobank, Anterra Capital and StartLife, collectively believing that innovation will be key to sustainably feed future generations.

    Disruptive innovation in itself is not enough; it also needs to be implemented and transformed into tangible applications. Entrepreneurs are needed for their drive, investors for their belief and corporates for their mass impact.

    To stimulate innovation and entrepreneurship the four founding partners initiated F&A Next in 2016. F&A Next is about thought leadership and connecting promising startups and scale-ups, to dedicated food & agtech investors and innovative corporates. It includes two days of networking, pitching and debating the dynamics in food and agriculture.

    From our hub on Wageningen Campus in the Netherlands, we organize events and active matchmaking to connect investors and corporates with startups and scale-ups.

    Join us!

F&A Next
3 months, 1 week ago 9 1

There is something magical about Unicorn startups; fast growing companies with a value of over $1 billion like Oatly, Beyond Meat, Trax and Lightspeed.
 
“But one unicorn doesn’t change the global food system”, says Marjolein A.J. Brasz Brasz, managing director of Foodvalley NL, ecosystem partner of F&A Next.
 
In a short F&A Next AfterTalk, Marjolein shares her thoughts on what’s needed to have global food systems in 2050 that supply for 10 million people, healthy, tasty, affordable and sustainable.
 
Feel free to share also your thoughts on what’s needed in the comments below.

F&A Next
3 months, 1 week ago 8 1

We have had many great speakers at F&A Next 2022, each addressing important issues in the transformation of our global food systems. 

If anyone has experience in bringing about change in the world, it is Tony Fadell. He helped give the world the iPod, iPhone and Nest thermostat. And now, as founder, CEO and principle of Future Shape LLC, Tony actively helps shaping the future of agriculture and food through investments in transformative technologies.

In a short after talk interview we asked Tony the following questions:
1) What's the biggest climate challenge?
2) Which solutions should and shouldn't we invest in?
3) What role does F&A Next play in driving transformation?
4) What is your number one advice?

Need more inspiration on how to making things worth making? Make sure to get Tony's book "𝗕𝘂𝗶𝗹𝗱 - 𝗔𝗻 𝗨𝗻𝗼𝗿𝘁𝗵𝗼𝗱𝗼𝘅 𝗚𝘂𝗶𝗱𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗠𝗮𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗧𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴𝘀 𝗪𝗼𝗿𝘁𝗵 𝗠𝗮𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴".

In his book Tony dispenses valuable tips and lessons for anyone striving to grow in their career, start-up founders and start-up dreamers, leaders of businesses big and small. The book is filled with stories and valuable lessons from his career, offering advice and solutions for your toughest moments. 

Thank you Tony!

Once again, we thank you all for your contribution and dedication to building sustainable global food systems. And we look forward to welcoming you next year, on 24-25 May 2023 (save the date!).

Climate change, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and a growing & urbanizing population, all require bold and scalable innovations in agriculture to ensure future food security.

Agricultural productivity needs to rise. Farming practices preventing further soil erosion, pollution and reduction of water use need to be implemented.

Are these achieved through precision agriculture, integrated pest management, high-efficiency irrigation and avoiding chemicals? Or are other forms of agriculture technology needed to ensure future food security around the globe? These are a few of the questions that will be discussed by Anna Rath, Trey Hill, Gary Grispan, Jacqui Campbell and moderator Spencer Maughan .
