Irish AgTech Event with the IFC (hosted by World Bank Group)
The IFC is glad to host this webinar to learn about co-investment opportunities for Irish Agtech companies in emerging markets.
Digital technologies can tackle food challenges, such as low productivity, high transaction costs, limited use of modern inputs and GHG emission reduction. In developed countries, digital tools have proven to be effective, but agricultural technology pioneers in emerging markets face numerous roadblocks to scaling up their products. Farming practices have remained unchanged and enormous potential exists for technological disruption in the sector.
The International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, is pleased to invite you to a webinar to discover co-investment opportunities for Irish Agtech companies in emerging markets. IFC is looking for tech-driven business models with the potential to disrupt existing industries and/or expand their reach to new markets in the developing world.
The virtual event will feature a panel of industry experts who will provide an overview of IFC’s Disruptive Technologies and Venture Capital Team, Agtech portfolio, and Investment focus in emerging economies.
