Your Ag | Food | Water Startup Idea In 54 Hours
Do you have an idea related to agriculture, food or water you’d like to pursue or a problem you’d like to solve but don’t know where to start or who to start with?Experts predict that we will need to double global food production over the next 35 years while land, energy and water resources are being quickly depleted. In Lebanon, water demand is rapidly increasing, while only 8% of wastewater is treated.
- Does your idea improve a process across the food value chain? Does it innovate in the agriculture sector from farm to fork?
- Does it solve sustainability challenges of sanitation management and water usage in irrigation, and human consumption?
Techstars Startup Weekend is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend.
In this edition of Techstars Startup Weekend innovation is key. Creatives, tech enthusiasts, experts, artists, designers, engineers, problem solvers and business-minded individuals are encouraged to attend, participate, experiment and innovate.
