This event is a follow-up to an earlier event, “Progressing the Development of Agri-Innovation in Singapore and SEA” which was held with Singapore Enterprise, ID Capital and Urban Farming Partners. The first webinar is still available on our website as an on-demand webinar.
In this second session, on progressing Agri-Innovation in the region, we will focus on collaborations across corporates, start-ups and ecosystem enablers and how these organisations are structuring engagement and investment to help accelerate better outcomes.
Encouraging and supporting Agri-tech solutions aimed at innovating the way soil, crops, nutrients and related-tech are funded, farmed, harvested, processed, traced and transported is crucial. We look forward to understanding how leaders are connecting within the SG and SEA innovation eco-system to enable smallholders to introduce innovative and scalable solutions to meet affordable and evolving requirements. This will be an insightful session with showcases of the new models, approaches, and initiatives being pursued in the region.
