Early-stage companies will be awarded €100,000 each to develop ag-tech ideas.
Agricultural technology accelerator programme Yield Lab Europe has opened for 2018 applications.
The programme, which supported four companies last year, is offering early-stage venture capital of €100,000 to start-up companies in the ag-tech sector, along with mentorship and a training programme.
This year the programme will consider up to eight early-stage firms for funding, supporting them to turn their ideas into successful internationally scalable businesses.
Participants in this year’s Yield Lab will also get to attend three of the world leading venture capital conferences for early-stage ag-tech companies – the Ag Innovation Showcase in St Louis, US, in September, the World AgriTech Innovation Summit in London in October, and the AgTech Nexus Global Ag Investing Conference in Dublin in December – with the Yield Lab programme covering their expenses
