Shark Tank: The innovations and start-ups set to disrupt our food systems
13:30 - 14:30
From vertical farming and high-tech sensors to artificial intelligence and blockchain, the current landscape of sustainable food tech is ripe with new innovations. The number of investors backing food and beverage start-ups has tripled in the last four years. The industry is no doubt full of intelligent innovations that may have the potential to disrupt traditional agriculture practices.
Adopting the style of the popular TV-show, Shark Tank, this session will see three AgTech start-ups and SMEs pitch their business to a panel of sharks and the audience. The audience will have the opportunity to ask as many questions as they wish to gain a deeper understanding of the technologies and to decide which participant they would invest in. A winner will be chosen at the end of the session following an open vote.
