Nextcelerator - The Digital Agriculture Hub is open to entrepreneurs in the AgriTech sector with an early-stage startup founded in Central and Eastern Europe, with an MVP already tested and plans to scale internationally. The programme will use mentoring sessions to identify startup vulnerabilities and opportunities, and then implement appropriate support mechanisms in the form of training, business planning, mentoring and facilitating access to professional farmers and players in agriculture.

The overall aim of this programme is to develop the capacity of market-ready startups and entrepreneurs in agriculture in Central and Eastern Europe so that they have greater potential to generate sustainable income and to connect them with investment partners who support their vision.

Fifty AgriTech startups from Central and Eastern Europe have signed up to Nextcelerator, the digital accelerator created by Agricover. The selected startups include marketplace projects, agri-food projects and agricultural process optimisation projects, most of them with revenues already in hand, traction behind them and the intention to refine their product and expand it into wider geographies.
