Anyone who has a good idea on how to strengthen the competitiveness of Hungarian peaches or how to imagine a virtual tour of the fields or would just solve the problem of unicellular pathogens in the ponds has a good chance to start the incubation program of NAK Tech Lab.
Eight large companies have joined the NAK TechLab incubation program for the renewal of Hungarian agriculture, launched by the National Chamber of Agriculture and Design Terminal, and have articulated the challenges for which an innovative solution is expected.
Auchan Retail Hungary, Axiál Kft., Bonafarm Group, Corteva Agriscience, KITE Zrt., SIÓ-Eckes Kft. And Syngenta Magyarország are the cooperating partners in helping startups to develop their market-conquering solutions. Among other things, the applicants were expected to come up with ideas to help optimize human workforce, support agricultural production and its digitization and automated promotion.
Following the success of the first agricultural startup incubator, the second NAK TechLab incubation program is launching in September 2020. The goal is to find the most innovative solutions in the domestic agricultural sector and food industry, thus making the industry and the market more competitive, sustainable and environmentally conscious. In three months, participating startups can boost their development through business training, intensive workshops, and working with mentors from the agro-industry, business development, and large corporations.
The incubation program closes with Demo Day at the end of November, where successful projects can be presented to agricultural decision-makers, so startups can even connect with other companies and investors.
