AGTECH ACCELERATOR recognized as AIM for Climate Innovation Sprint partner
AGTECH ACCELERATOR is proud to be recognized as an Innovation Sprint partner with Agriculture Innovation Mission (AIM) for Climate at the 27th Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP27). AIM for Climate works to enable solutions at the intersection of agriculture and climate and seeks to address climate change and global hunger.
As climate change continues to impact global temperature, weather and seasonality, agricultural practices must adapt to continue to produce food for the growing population. New technologies, products, and approaches are required to mitigate and adapt to climate change while supporting growth and jobs.
Aligning with this mission, AGTECH ACCELERATOR looks to increase the investment, innovation, and adoption of climate-smart agriculture technology through our participating agtech companies. Bolstered by the $60 Million Emmertech fund, this three-year innovation sprint provides agtech startups across Canada and the UK with access to the capital, programming, and connections needed to address issues in food security and the climate crisis.
Cohort 1 companies, Livestock Water Recycling, Crop Intellect and Lucent Biosciences are in attendance at COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, which is an opportunity for stakeholders to collectively tackle the global challenge of climate change.
