Ashfords & Farm491 Roundtable: Breaking Down Barriers to Capital in the AgriTech sector
Farm491 and Ashfords are hosting a roundtable discussion around breaking down barriers to capital in AgriTech, with a focus on moving beyond Series A to accelerate growth of the British AgriTech economy. Aimed at investors actively interested in the space, and including case studies of some fast growth AgriTech companies, the discussion will be a small, closed event to try and unlock more funding into the industry, exploring key questions such as:
- Is there currently enough funding within the UK to support UK AgriTech
- Profit vs. impact agenda – what’s driving investment?
- What role could strategic partners be playing in scaling start-ups (ground truthing, R&D, new markets) to help more investors engage with the space?
- IP vs. adaptation & business model innovation?
