There is no better time to be an ‘agripreneur’ (an agriculture entrepreneur). Foodtech and agtech start-ups raised US$19.8bn globally in 2019, up from US$2.1m in 2017 - but only 3 per cent of this funding was directed towards women agripreneurs.
This August, WOMAG and LEVEL3 are partnering to host a series of virtual events to increase awareness about challenges and opportunities for women agripreneurs: “Where are the Women: Exploring Agripreneurship in Southeast Asia”.
On 20 August, join us for our second event on this topic. This virtual “Ask Me Anything” networking session brings together 6 ecosystem experts to share their experiences intimately in small group format, encouraging you to raise concerns, issues and connect with other ecosystem players. Spend your evening engaging in an open conversation with others in the field!
- Jackie DeVore, Gunderson Dettmer
- Michelle Chee, The Yield Lab
- Michael Sweeney, Bluegrass Partners
- Jean Yeow, ID Capital
- Phyu Hninn Nyein, Proximity Designs
Mark your calendars for the rest of this series of virtual events in August to listen, engage, discuss and connect with startup ecosystem players. Register now for all our events this month.
