“Revolutionizing the World’s Menu”
Future Agro Challenge(FAC) is an international food&agriculture pitching competition that has representatives in 60 countries around the globe. FAC is created by the Greek organization Industry Disruptors, as part of the Global Entrepreneurship Congress and each year the organization selects the “Agripreneur of the Year” as part of the Congress. FAC’s goal is to underline the global challenges we face today in the food system and to promote the entrepreneurship within this sector to build solutions to them.
What Is Kök Projekt Doing?
As the representative for Turkey, Kök Projekt works together with Industry Disruptors and Endeavor Turkey to seek and select the entrepreneurs and startups who will participate to the finals for the Global Agripreneurs Summit.
In the Turkey scene of the FAC, there are some main problems that we are searching for the solution. Today, agriculture makes around 23% of the Turkish economy, with 2.4million farmers working within 20 million hectares of space. If we take a look in the demographics, an average Turkish farmer is aged 54 years old, while an average Turkish person is 27; this contrast in the demographics shows one of the essential needs in the Turkish agricultural scene, the young farmers. By blending the countryside farmers and urban entrepreneurs, the contest will provide new technologies and growth investment in the Turkish agriculture scene.
