Singapore-Japan Fast Track Pitch Event
Creating a circular economy in the agri-food value chain
The startup ecosystem in Japan is known to be a regional leader in innovation. The Fast Track Pitch will facilitate constructive engagement between leading food corporations like Buhler and talented startups so we can unlock solutions and innovate together in a broader, inclusive way. This is a tremendous opportunity to tackle the current fragmented landscape through an ecosystems approach, where we develop a community of practice to share learnings and capacity building. It is imperative that we explore collaborative solutions to the region's most pressing food system challenges, with the intention of harnessing access to shared resources and ideas outside of a corporation's area of expertise to solve critical challenges. We look forward to closely working with Japanese startups to make an impact together!
