Future Agro Challenge (FAC) aims to make a global impact by increasing interaction amongst agro innovators, entrepreneurs, stakeholders and investors and by addressing national policies and challenges.
FAC is the largest global competition that discovers innovative fundable food, agtech, and agriculture ventures from various corners of the globe. FAC provides key tools and opportunities to help them grow their business and expand them into new markets.
There is not one simple solution to any of the complex global challenges of feeding the estimated growing population of 9 billion people by 2050. FAC was ignited in Greece, at the crossing of three continents, is rich in diversity in both wild and cultivated plant species, has developed its botanical and agricultural practices for millennia, and the source of the famous Mediterranean diet, and has grown into a global competition. As FAC takes root in each joining nation, the knowledge base is enriched with a transfer of ideas and solutions. Each nation and region brings a new perspective, having overcome different obstacles and offering different facets of innovation.
While disruptive solutions are being created across regions, individuals and visionaries often feel overwhelmed by the complexities to integrate in the agricultural ecosystem. The people behind FAC and StartUp Tablelands believe discovering solutions to global challenges should not be so complicated.
FAC supports agro visionaries, startups, farmers, manufacturers, and distributors from countries across several continents. The most promising ideas and ventures are selected to compete in the Global Championships for the title of ‘Agribusiness of the Year’.
