The hottest meeting place for food & agri companies, start-ups and investors.
Following the success of the 2016 edition, this year’s F&A Next will be held on 17 and 18 May on the campus of Wageningen University & Research. F&A Next is an international platform for investors, start-ups and companies in the food & agricultural sector.
Last year, Rabobank and StarLlife joined WUR to launch this international deal-making platform. Start-ups and investors joined forces to find innovative solutions to changes in the Food & Agri domain. Two days of meeting people and swapping ideas resulted in various successful alliances.
This year’s F&A Next focuses on two themes: a smarter way of producing more food with less ecological impact, and the interaction between food and health. The transition to ‘smart farming’ and the food industry’s influence on tackling the problem of obesity are among the subjects on the agenda. For the full programme, go to: www.fanext.com
Pitch to an international audience
F&A Next 2017 gives start-ups an opportunity to pitch their ideas on an international podium. Over a hundred international venture capital funds and corporate venture funds will be attending the event, along with representatives from major international food & agri companies. In addition to the pitch sessions, start-ups and investors will also get the chance to meet each other during the corporate presentations, at network moments and in one-on-one talks.
Start-ups interested in making a pitch can register via www.fanext.com. This also applies to food and agri companies and investors keen to develop a partnership at F&A Next or simply attend the event. You will find more background information on the website.
We look forward to welcoming you to F&A Next2017 in person on 17 and 18 May in Wageningen.
