All over the world, innovative farmers, start-ups, companies, and research institutions are coming up with new agritech ideas. We will exchange those ideas at AG/SUM, crossing borders and industries. Let’s plant these new business seeds together.
We must all work together to grow these seeds through open innovation. Top experts, accelerators, and incubators from within Japan and overseas will come together at AG/SUM. With their help, the seeds will sprout.
We need the support of investors and funds, companies, and governments for the sprouts to grow into real businesses. When all parties work together and agritech businesses blossom globally, it will create a brighter future for agriculture and the many people involved in it. This is the final goal of AG/SUM.
