Optimizing resources in agrifoodtech

Join our Deputy CEO & Program Manager, Bianca Campos, at this Zürich networking and innovation event that aims to ask the right questions about resource optimization to boost sustainability in the agrifood tech system.


Swissnex in Brazil will be part of the “Business in Sustainable Foodtech,” a 4-year event part of the Networking Event Series promoted by BusinessIn in partnership with Innosuisse. To make new, emerging technologies and business models accessible to interested Swiss players, Innosuisse promotes the multi-year Networking Event Series on important topics.

Sustainable food production is a significant issue. These Networking Event Series aim to stimulate the innovation of actors along the value chain from food production to consumption, helping them initiate technology-based innovation projects thanks to connections with R&D centers.

Bianca Campos, our Deputy CEO & Program Manager, will participate in the event’s roundtable to connect and account for the opportunities available in Brazil, especially for startups. It is an opportunity to connect in a targeted manner with potential innovation partners and be challenged and motivated during participatory discussions, workshops, speed dating, and exhibitions, all complemented by a creative cocktail.
