10 Agtech & Foodtech Incubators and Accelerators from around the globe
The agtech and foodtech arena is a rapidly growing and changing industry and there are a vast number of challenges facing agripreneurs starting out in business in this space.
The ‘Valley of Death’ is not a myth and it is no secret that up to 90% of new ideas fail, so Incubators and Accelerators can be invaluable in providing support to startups in agtech and foodtech. It is important to note the difference between the two. An Incubator focuses on early stage ideas and helps an agripreneur to build their business from the ground up with no defined timeframe. An Accelerator, is often then the next step, as its purpose is to help an agrifood startup move to the next stage of its business development. Accelerator programs generally extend some form of investment and accept equity as a form of payment from participant startups.
