HONG KONG PROGRAM

AGRITECH
Overview

A virtual program focusing on global startups that are developing new alternatives and better processes to solve the inefficiencies in the food supply chain and fix our broken food system.

Our food system is broken. The world’s population is expected to grow to 9.8 billion by 2050 and will comprise people who, on average, will live longer than ever before. To accommodate this, current food production will need to almost double. Yet, our current food production system is inefficient, unsustainable, and cannot be scaled to meet the growing demands of an ever-increasing global population.

This leads to a pressing need to rethink every part of the agri-food supply chain from farm to fork. From reducing and upcycling food waste, unlocking novel ingredients and food processing methods, making our food supply chain more efficient and transparent, to rethinking how food products reach the end consumer, we believe innovation is the key to solving a multitude of problems.

To enhance the efficiency and sustainability of our food system, we invest in founders using technology to disrupt the agri-tech system. Join the leading Food Technology program in the heart of Asia and get access to one of the fastest growing urban and population centres in the world.

Our Offer

We invest a minimum of $80,000 USD via SAFE note or in an equity round for a negotiable percentage.
