World Agri-Tech Demo Day Finalists Announced

Rethink Events are delighted to announce the ten companies selected to pitch their ag and food-tech solutions at the World Agri-Tech Demo Day.

The pre-summit Demo Day, taking place in London on October 16, offers an opportunity to very early-stage, pre-revenue companies with exciting solutions in sustainable agriculture, farm management, animal health and food processing to showcase their solutions to potential investors.

The company judged to make the best pitch will be invited to present at the main World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit, taking place the following day, which attracts more than 300 agribusiness leaders from around the globe.

Selected from dozens of applicants, the winning ten companies are:

ApisProtect: Helping beekeepers prevent losses and increase productivity.

Agribot: Robotic tools to improve farmers’ productivity and competitiveness.
