Agritech Investment Forum

New Zealand agritech companies frequently tell us that seeking investment, while critical, presents a whole new set of challenges. To help address this we are hosting the Agritech Investment Forum, a two-day event in Auckland.

Day 1 - Investor Landscape
Tuesday 21 November 2023, Auckland

The Agritech Investment Forum will start with speakers sharing pearls of wisdom and their real-life stories of investing or receiving investment themselves. This must-attend day will look at a range of different aspects of investment including methods that agritech companies can approach raising capital as well as the lesser-known aspects of the pressure-cooker environment of investment.
