World Agri-Tech Investment Summit 2013
Investment opportunities in agricultural biotech, precision irrigation and water conservation
The World Agri-Tech Investment Summit will address the growing importance of advanced agricultural technologies in meeting global food demand, and the opportunities this presents for the investment community to engage with and support the development of agricultural innovation.
With a specific focus on agricultural biotechnology and software-driven precision farming, the summit will bring together global leaders in resource-efficient agriculture with the world’s most innovative technology developers and the international cleantech investment community.
Two days of intensive discussion and networking will feature:
- International policy-makers presenting current and future demand for investment in agri-tech

- VC and corporate investors debating the opportunities and challenges of integrating agri-tech into a cleantech investment portfolio
