AgVenture Launch

EBRD is extending support to the start-up food and agri-tech sector through the EBRD AgVenture programme.

Are you a food or agri-tech start-up facing some of the biggest challenges in the food industry today? We are looking for ideas on how start-ups can help address rising input costs, counter the impact of intensifying climate change and ensure fair inclusion in global value chains.

Join our EBRD AgVenture start-up launch event to connect with investors and discover what they are looking for in food and agri-tech start-ups and the sector more broadly. Find out what the EBRD is doing to support innovation and start-ups.
