Foodtech & sustainability in Asia amid food security challenges
Covid-19 started in Asia, and the region was the first to feel the social and economic impacts of the disease as it spread worldwide. It’s also where businesses, entrepreneurs, investors, and governments have spent the most time dealing with Covid-19 and its effects. Their insights and experience – and the strategies they’ve adopted to ride out the pandemic – could prove invaluable to agrifood players not just in Asia, but elsewhere in the world, too. This is the recording of our second webinar.

Digging into the future and sustainability of protein in our diets
The importance of protein in our diets is hardly breaking news.
When you combine the developing world’s desire for more meat, with the over-consumption of meat and protein in the developed world, alongside a growing desire in multiple corners of the world to eat fewer animal-based products, there’s clear pressure on the globe’s protein supply.
Sara Eckhouse & Victor Friedberg from FoodShot Global speak about their hopes for a more precise protein industry.
How the digitalization of agriculture will increase food's sustainability
How does an environmentalist become an aerial imagery data analytics and A.I. entrepreneur? Find out in this episode with Al Eisaian, a serial entrepreneur from the mobile apps and software space.
Al's company IntelinAir uses images captured from airplanes to help farmers identify problem areas in their fields and make decisions that can reduce the burden of their activities on the environment, such as reducing pesticide or fertilizer usage. It can also importantly help the bottom line of those farms.
The future of agrifood investing in the wake of Covid-19

This is part of a new series of webinars AgFunder is hosting to navigate the crisis. This first episode features Dave Friedberg, founder of agech's first unicorn, and Blake Stevens, principal at Alexandria Ventures.

A budding podcast worth following
As an avid listener of podcasts and an agtech VC, I think Louisa does a fantastic job bringing on great guests from around our space and asking insightful questions. I like how she pauses and “double clicks” on certain comments when guests say something interesting or contrarian. I’d love more founder stories and visionaries that really want to dive deep in the “what will our food system look like in 2050” question. Keep going Louisa!
