Silicon Valley-based SVG Ventures | THRIVE, co-organizer of Smart Agrifood Summit has launched the THRIVE Europe Challenge to recognize and promote key early- and late-stage startups in the agrifood sector. The Europe Challenge follows regional challenges previously held in Australia, Canada, and Africa and is aligned with the Farm to Fork Strategy in the European Green Deal and the U.N. SDGs.
Five to ten startups will be selected from the pool of applicants to present their ideas at THRIVE Europe’s Pitch Challenge before an audience of top agricultural leaders, investors, and entrepreneurs. One winning startup will receive the THRIVE EUROPE Challenge Award, brand exposure, participation in a Silicon Valley Startup Bootcamp, access to the THRIVE ecosystem, and a spot at pitch finals for the Extreme Tech Challenge (XTC) and the award-winning THRIVE VIII Accelerator Program (March-June 2022) which includes investment and pitching at THRIVE | Forbes Demo Day in Salinas, California, USA.
