Transforming Agriculture

Agtech trends to keep an eye on and Greek agtech startups, AI and product management, lessons learned building high-growth companies, back to the startup garage, funding rounds, jobs, and more

The fates of agriculture and climate change are inextricably linked. Avoiding a climate catastrophe is core to our species’ survival, and to do so, we need more sustainable and resilient agriculture. Driven by shifts in eating habits, population growth, climate change, and failing soils, our agriculture industry faces moonshot-sized challenges with farmers walking the thinnest of tightropes: feed the world while saving the planet.

It’s all in the ancient scripts of Indian Vedas from 4,000 years ago:

Upon this handful of soil our survival depends. Care for it and it will grow our food, our fuel, our shelter, and surround us with beauty. Abuse it and the soil will collapse and die, taking humanity with it.

To better understand how technology is transforming agriculture, we teamed up with Thaleia Misailidou to map the Greek agtech startup ecosystem and asked seven thoughtful founders and investors to share the trend they believe is worth watching. Big industrials and prominent funds have backed some of the teams in this list (CNH Industrial – Augmenta / Balderton – Better Origin / Point Nine – Wikifarmer).

Let’s get to it.
