AgTech startups for business growth to be presented at GRAIN UKRAINE 2018

The prospects of Ukraine's transition from agrarian to AgTech-country will be discussed on September 7-8 in Odessa at the international grain conference GRAIN UKRAINE 2018. The partner of the innovative block of the conference is Agrohub — a platform for introducing innovations in the agricultural sector.

Over the past five years investments in AgTech startups in the world have increased almost threefold and in 2017 exceeded USD10 billion per year.

As noted by Kyrylo Kryvolap, partner of Agrohub and associate partner of Civitta, there are several ways of introducing innovations in the agrarian sphere.

"At our innovative panel on GRAIN UKRAINE, we will gather the audience interested in innovation: startups who independently develop technological solutions in the agrarian sphere, those who work for the needs of agri companies, as well as potential customers — producers and agri traders. We will discuss in detail case studies of the risks and benefits of implementing technological solutions," says Kyrylo Kryvolap.

Agrohub together with Radar Tech and MHP launched the first Ukrainian agrarian accelerator in 2017 and examined 186 applications from startups. Some successful solutions for the grain market will be presented at GRAIN UKRAINE as part of the pitching session for traders and logistics companies.

"In 2018, we planned to cover 15% of operators of the organic market, and this is about 70 users, but in two weeks of work we received more than 150 registration requests. Such categories as cereals, leguminous crops, including products of their processing, are already presented on our platform," says Dmitry Titarenko, the founder of Agroportex.Bio and one of the participants of the pitching session at Agrohub Innovation Panel.
