AgTech Climate Change Event

Can AgTech startups tackle global climate challenges?

AgTech startups have been changing the agricultural and farming landscape by digitalizing an industry that has changed little in over a century. We are also at an unprecedented time in history where climate change poses the largest threat to our security and safety as a planet.

How can AgTech work within the environment to alleviate, not contribute to Climate Change?

In this context, the Rinnovation group is proud to participate in the NYC CLIMATE WEEK and co-host an event with GKH Law Offices: Gross, Kleinhendler, Hodak, Halevy, Greenberg, Shenhav & Co. & GrowingIL of Israel Innovation Institute. The online event is scheduled on Wed, September 23, 2020.

It will cover how AgTech startups tackle climate challenges as part of the Food & Land theme. A panel of Israeli/American entrepreneurs, investors, and experts will discuss the ways AgTech startups around the world are tackling and successfully solving global climate challenges.
