During our 4 day event we will go in depth on 3 themes and handle 9 tracks in total. November 4th will be when all the tracks present their final deliverable, the Innovation Roadmap. A track covers a specific and urgent ecosystem challenge that we are facing in agrifood, like farm buyouts, digital identities and food transparency. See track themes below.
StrikeTwo attracts the best and the brightest. Our tracks are tackled head on by a curated coalition of farmers, private businesses, research organisations, NGOs, start-ups, students and government. Not only do attendees join the tracks and collaborate on an innovation roadmap - they commit to its execution. Our Strategic and Technical advisory committee members support track owners and the participants.
A great idea is one thing, execution is another. Our tried and tested StrikeTwo methodology ensures each track challenge is well defined by facilitating input from experts and stakeholders. Design thinking informs the methodology, while ensuring everyone gets involved. The end result is rapid a consortium of partners committed to executing the innovation roadmap
Consumers are becoming more and more interested in knowing the origin, safety and nutritional value of the food. Blockchain and other technologies are facilitating this transition, incorporating more traceability and safety information in food supply chains, to ensure consumers’ needs on the origin of food products as well as their quality and safety standards are met.
Global food systems need to be re-organised to counteract the shrinking farm incomes. StrikeTwo aims to increase farm gains, driven by technological solutions. Making technology like machine learning, AI and blockchain available, practical, and usable for farmers can help increase their income and raise the standard of living for smallholder farmers across the globe.
In a globalised economy, supply chains have only become more complicated. StrikeTwo believes there is a better way forward for farmers, consumers, and all supply chain partners. Technology can deeply connect supply chain partners to each other and increase the efficiency and transparency of the global food trade.
I think the very action-oriented methodology you are choosing is what I like..the action-orientedness of this event.
The great breakthrough for me is for the first time, as companies, we sat together and said ‘What if we created this?’ We haven’t done it yet, not in an afternoon. But at least we said this is the plan for how we can get to that fully integrated supply chain.
This is a conference where people who understand agriculture are trying to come together to use technology to solve some of the bigger problems in the world.
