Agrifood technology is broad and encompasses many different sectors. There are certain areas of agrifood tech that get more investment (e.g. drone based precision ag) than others. We're glad to see those areas attracting attention, but we're concerned that other areas continue to be severely underinvested in. As such, we work with partners to hone in on specific opportunities and incentivize innovation in those spaces through the Open Innovation Challenge model. The Innovation Challenge model provides non-dilutive funding, mentorship and other resources and support to advance agrifoodtech in underinvested areas.
