Today we are excited to release the winners of the inaugural AgFunder Innovation Awards.
Startup activity in food and agriculture technology is growing dramatically; at AgFunder we’ve come across over 5k companies since 2014. At the same time, investors are paying increasing attention to the potential for technology to revolutionize the food industry and provide them with financial returns.
To recognize the agtech startups that are driving the industry forward and are the most innovative, we decided to launch the AgFunder Innovation Awards. To determine these awards, we asked you, our global network of over 25k people committed to the progression of agriculture, to submit nominations for consideration.
