F&A Next is an initiative by Rabobank, Wageningen University & Research, Anterra Capital and StartLife, collectively believing that innovation will be key to sustainably feeding future generations. Disruptive innovation in itself is not enough; it also needs to be implemented and transformed into tangible applications. Entrepreneurs are needed for their drive, investors for their belief and corporates for their mass impact.
To stimulate innovation and entrepreneurship the partners initiated F&A Next in 2016. F&A Next is about thought leadership and connecting promising start-ups and scale-ups, to dedicated food & agtech investors and innovative corporates. It includes two days of networking, pitching and debating the dynamics in food and agriculture
