F&A Next is the first European platform for investors, startups and scale-ups in the food and agricultural domain. Established by leading experts in the Netherlands, the hub of Europe’s agri-food sector, the platform will be launched at a two-day event this May at Wageningen Campus in the Netherlands.
Often at the cutting edge of innovation, startups take unconventional approaches to the major issues of our day. Yet, however bright the ideas, financing is frequently a major obstacle to success. F&A Next will bring high potential startups from the food and agricultural industry together with potential investors, serving as a springboard to greater innovation and a better (business) deal for all.
On 25 & 26 May 2016, the campus of Wageningen UR will be buzzing with start-ups and investors in food and agriculture (F&A).
F&A Next is an initiative of Wageningen UR, Rabobank, FoodValley NL and Startlife. The event aims to facilitate and increase investments in start-ups and scale-ups (start-ups with proven concepts that are ready to scale-up) in Food and Agriculture technology in the Netherlands.
