Agriculture technology (Ag Tech) startups are benefitting from shifting consumer trends and increasing investor appetite across Southeast Asia according to Silicon Valley-based AgFunder, a leading VC firm propelling sustainable companies forward.

AgFunder just launched its second ‘Grow Impact Accelerator’ program and announced the 10 startups (out of 270 applications) that will join the cohort, based virtually in Singapore.

Strong synergy between legacy food brands, startups, and investors should continue to drive the ag-tech sector—in vertical farming, crop management technology, food waste reduction, marketplaces, D2C products, sustainable packaging, and other niches.
