An agribusiness platform for start-ups and established businesses
By Josefin Lehmann
Prior to Farm & Food in January, we teamed up with the Start-Up Accelerator SmartHectar Innovation to organize the “Pioneering Agtech Breakfast” in Berlin. Our host was Dr. Henning Ehlers, Managing Director of the German Raiffeisen Association.
Friedrich Wilhelm Raiffeisen’s principles are based on self-help, self-responsibility and self-organisation. Dr. Henning Ehlers talks about what this means for the cooperation with start-ups in the agribusiness.
The “Pioneering Agtech Breakfast” aimed at the underrepresented field of seed financing or start-up collaborations in the German-speaking countries. Pioneering AgTech brings together cutting-edge start-ups and established companies in the agricultural and food industries. We bring together a global start-up network with leading agricultural and food know-how to identify new products and technologies and improve existing business models.
The focus is on practical examples and experiences from cooperation between established companies and start-ups in the agricultural and food industries.
Pioneering AgTech will also be one of the main topics at Farm & Food in Berlin on 21 January. Together with experts from BASF, KWS SAAT and Tengelmann Ventures, we will discuss how to achieve a competitive advantage in the age of digitization through collaboration with start-ups.
