Investing in the future of agricultural technologies

Posted on: 04/07/2017

Agri-Tech companies can apply to pitch to an audience of investors at KTN’s AgriTech Investment Event.

There is a recognised need for increased private investment in agricultural technologies (Agri-Tech) to ensure that the UK can further realise recent public investments, such as projects funded by the Agri-Tech Catalyst, and fully exploit the technical excellence available within the UK.

In order to facilitate translation of the ambitions of the agricultural community into ongoing commercial benefits, the KTN Agri-Food team are hosting an AgriTech Investment event on 12th October at Prince Phillip House, Pall Mall, London.

This event will enable a number successful companies to present their investment opportunity to an audience of dedicated Agri-Tech Investors from the UK. The event is being delivered in partnership with the Department for International Trade (DIT), who are hosting an event on Game Changing Technologies in Agri-Tech on the previous day, 11th October, nearby at One George Street London, providing a perfect opportunity for international investors to attend both events.

KTN invites applications from exciting Agri-Tech companies to present at this event.

Following a panel review of applications, a number of companies will be invited to participate in a KTN Pitch Training event on 14th September, followed by a Pitch Presentation Day on 5th October, with the final selection of 12-14 pitches invited to present to investors at the AgriTech Investment Event on 12th October.

Please contact your key KTN Knowledge Transfer Manager or Chris Danks to discuss project ideas and company suitability, and to request a short application form, which needs to be submitted by Friday 25th August.
