Opportunity

Agriculture is one of the least digitised industries globally, positioning it for technological revolution. Foods and clothing will always be a human necessity therefore agriculture will always exist regardless of the economic conditions. Consumers are increasingly socially and environmentally focused, driving demand for sustainability-targeted agricultural solutions.

The Food & Agriculture Organisation (FAO) predict that agricultural production must increase by 70% by 2050 to meet global food demand, providing an opportunity for agricultural startups to reshape the food production system. Hence a substantial increase in investment is required.

Venture capital and corporate hybrids have begun investing substantial capital into AgTech during recent years. In 2017, global investment in AgTech totalled AU$14.5 billion, up 30% since 2016. Australia is significantly behind in funding AgTech, there is huge potential for investors to maximise their opportunity in agricultural innovations.

We have a number of AgTech deals coming soon.
