While disruptive solutions are being created across regions, individuals and visionaries often feel overwhelmed by the complexities to integrate in the agricultural ecosystem. Discovering solutions to global challenges should not be so complicated. In that respect, Berytech created Agrytech, the program that aims to cultivate innovative startups turning Agri-Food challenges into business opportunities.

Moving forward, Berytech has partnered with Future Agro Challenge (FAC) a global competition for food and agribusiness startups from various corners of the globe addressing national, regional and global challenges.

FAC provides key tools and opportunities to help your startup grow its business and expand it into new markets.  FAC is working to make a difference on a global level by increasing interaction amongst agro innovators, entrepreneurs, and stakeholders by addressing national policies and challenges.

“There’s an agricultural revolution underway. And our passion is pushing the envelope until innovative and fundable food, agtech, and agriculture innovations have spread around the globe, from farm to fork and beyond. The Future Agro Challenge is the leading global competition, bringing together the best of the best to make it all happen.”

FAC culminates every year with its Global Agripreneurs Summit, where the most promising ideas and ventures on an international level are selected to compete for the title of the ”Agripreneur of the Year”.
