Pitch Day with Tesco Agri T-Jam
The World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit and leading British retailer Tesco have joined forces to combine the pre-summit Pitch Day with Tesco’s Agri T-Jam. The competition will give early stage agri-tech innovators and entrepreneurs the chance to compete for exclusive fast-track introduction to Tesco’s supply chain partners and mentoring from their Agricultural Team.
Tesco is seeking disruptive breakthrough technologies and turnkey solutions that have the potential to optimise its supply chain. Applications are open to seed and early stage start-ups, as well as to even earlier concept stage ideas still in research which could be brought quickly into development and testing. Applications are also invited from start-up technologies in other industries which could be adapted to benefit the agri-food sector.
Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to: Sustainable feed | Reduction of farm level emissions | Responsible use of antibiotics | Meat grading and quality | On farm sensor technology and remote sensing | Sustainable crop protection | Soil health | Water management | Automation and robotics | Waste reduction
All applications will be reviewed by the Tesco team, and a final shortlist of ten companies will be invited to present live in front the Tesco panel of judges and a group of investors, corporate partners and agribusiness experts at the World Agri-Tech Pitch Day on October 15 2018 in London.
The winner will be given the opportunity to trial their technology with Tesco’s supply chain partners, and benefit from mentoring from Tesco’s Agricultural Team.
The winning company will also present in front of the entire audience at the World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit on October 16 as part of the acclaimed Technology Showcase. All ten finalists will be invited to attend the two-day summit to network with agribusiness leaders and gain insights from the comprehensive agenda.
