Welcome to the AgriTech & Sustainable Food Chain Venture Days!

The challenges faced by agriculture and the entire food chain industry in the light of growing global population, diminishing resources and climate change call for a paradigm shift in the way we ensure food security in regard to all its economic, environmental and societal aspects. To tackle and solve environmental, social and governance challenges, innovation processes and business collaboration need to be re-thought and strengthened.  

Join us in the endeavour to speed the uptake of sustainable technologies in agri-food systems. Let's solve the challenge together! 

The aim of AgriVenture Finland 2023 is to combine innovations related to sustainable food and smart farming with financing:  to raise awareness, provide networking opportunities, generate cooperation and growth opportunities for businesses, and overall accelerate the uptake of sustainable technologies in Agri-Food Systems.

Content of the Event

The event consists of inspiring keynotes from global enterprises and international speakers, a high-level pitching competition for start-ups, practical demonstrations in the BioEconomy testbed environment, as well as  efficient matchmaking with the hottest startups, investors and industry colleagues! 

The environment of the event, Bioeconomy Campus, offers multiple opportunities to test technologies in real world circumstances, experience modern agriculture machinery and digital solutions in action - but also enjoy Finnish nature and the midnight sun.
