Today, technology is possibly the most sought after ingredient in our diets! The world’s food and agriculture industries have shown rapidly growing investment in FoodTech innovation projects that work to transform the agri-food industry to support healthier and more sustainable food habits. 

Learn how food tech uses state-of-the-art technologies to revolutionise the food industry into a more modern, sustainable and efficient sector across all its stages from food preparation, to distribution to consumption!
Food from across the world is available to consumers today, regardless of the season, location, or environment. However, the greater options and accessibility are accompanied by increasing complexity in the food supply chain.

With growing data and lengthening ecosystems within the industry, the importance of trust weighs heavier than ever before. From the farmer, processor, retailer, to the consumer, the blockchain solution today helps us ensure that transparency enables the expanding food system.

Paul Chang, Global Blockchain Distribution and Industrial Markets Leader from IBM, is sharing with us about Food Trust, the winner of 2019 Spark Galleries Platinum Award for Digital Design and 2019 Financial Times Intelligent Business 2019, and also a solution selected in Fortune’s 2019 Change the World list.

The bottomline of agriculture is to produce enough to feed the world. The ability to produce the optimum crop, consistently and sustainably, is increasingly in demand as we witness pressures on supply chains and food security locally and globally.

In this keynote, David Farquhar – CEO from IGS, will share the knowledge on ‘Agriculture 4.0’. He will illustrate how complete control over all growing parameters in an indoor environment can deliver optimum crops every time and help drive a future sustainable supply chain.
In recent years, various kinds of food alternatives have been emerging as health-related trends have kept drawing attention from all generations of people around the world. Plant-based and Cell-based food, for instance, are among the most eye-catching ones.  The big question is, whether they are just a fashion that will eventually fade away, or a long-lasting, sustainable solution that will become our common way of living in the future.

Andrew Ive, Founder & Managing General Partner of Big Idea Ventures, is going to give you the insights of Plant-based and Cell-based food, including what they are and their influence on the business world. 

Especially for entrepreneurs, Andrew will guide you through the impact of Plant-based and Cell-based food on the Asia, regional and global market. And also how global food companies are responding to this new opportunity? More insight for what is Big Idea Ventures doing to support the food company industry on this plant-based trend.
Our ability to produce food, fibre and other biologically based products has evolved consistently since the start of recorded history, however the industry has been slower than other sectors of the global economy to adopt widely used digital technologies. Before COVID-19 transformed the everyday for much of the world’s population, the pressing challenges of meeting the growing demand for food while utilising less of the planet’s natural resources had initiated a transformation in the way products are grown, processed, distributed and eaten, or the Global Agrarian Revolution. The way that the pandemic has reconnected people with food will accelerate this transition. 

In this talk, Ian will assess key trends in the transformation of agri-food supply chains and through the use of examples of innovation in other sectors of the economy provide perspectives on what the future of food and fibre production may be in a tech enabled world that is learning to adapt to COVID-19.

"Like the startups they fund and the industries they disrupt, the venture capital industry needs to constantly evolve, pivot, innovate, and adapt if it is to stay relevant in a fast-changing world. The Venture Capital sessions address issues that are not just top-of-mind for venture capitalists today, but also those under-the-radar issues that may potentially become VC industry drivers and disruptors in the years to come. Join us to learn those issues, trends, and problems that impact the venture capital industry, and by extension, startup and innovation ecosystems as a whole.”
ESG and impact investing are on the rise and have no doubt been accelerated by the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. But much of the conversation has circled public markets. What does all this mean for the private markets - venture capital in particular? Are ESG practices and an eye on su\tainability good-to-haves, or urgent imperatives for early stage companies? Do we expect ESG and impact to shape the way we pick winners, allocate capital, and run companies? If so, when should we plan to take action, and how?
Join us as we explore these questions with three experienced industry insiders operating at the intersection of venture capital and impact:

Daniel Bertoli, Venture Partner, Quona Capital
David Galipeau, Founding Partner at SDGx
Jennifer Xu, US Head of Development at Epic Foundation

The conversation will be moderated by Jaclyn Seow, Head of ESG & Impact at Openspace Ventures.
As technologists, futurists, and investors, venture capitalists caution old school industries that in the face of disruption, they must adapt or die. But what forces threaten the venture capital industry itself, and what can we do as VCs to adapt? It is a common narrative that industries, economies and even societies face disruption from technologies such as A.I., blockchain, and 5G, but are forces such as racial unrest and Black Lives Matter, gender equality and Me Too, and climate change and environmental activism any less disruptive to those same industries, economies and societies? And how might they impact the world of venture capital? What other under-the-radar trends also present threats to the startup and venture capital industries, yet also potentially offer incredible opportunities? 

Join this fireside chat between moderator and former corporate VC Paul Ark, and 500 Startup alumna, Cake Ventures founder, and Techsauce Global Summit highlight speaker Monique Woodard as they explore the VC’s “ticking time bombs/hidden treasure”.
Understanding the post-COVID startup investment landscape requires an understanding of the seed and angel investment landscape during the pandemic.
