What we believe
We believe that technology from uncovering potential agricultural solutions with an eye on sustainability and food security – to the technology disrupting the ways we eat and drink, can be a true game-changer.
We also strongly believe that consumer trends towards health awareness, convenience and quality products combined with the growing influence of technology will pave the way for a new personalized nutrition revolution and startups innovating in this space. Wearable technology to provide insights into healthy living and personalized nutrition based on genetic testing will as a result be on our radar. Likewise, we’re interested in the emergence of functional food with the goal of providing natural, sustainable and scientifically proven health solutions based on bioinformatics.
