Project Agrytech Is Giving Lebanese Startups $40,000 To Innovate Agri-Food Industry

Project Agrytech is Lebanon’s newest agri-food innovation hub that launched on January 19, 2017. This project is funded by Berytech, a technological pole in Lebanon that provides a conducive environment for the creation and development of startups, and the Embassy of Netherlands in partnership with the Lebanese Ministry of Economy & Trade.

For those who don’t know, the agri-food industry, which is the business of producing food agriculturally (as opposed to through hunting, fishing, gathering, and so on), represents 10% of global consumer spending and 40% of employment.

The program offers great opportunities for startups and SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) in the agri-food sector of Lebanon.
