What is the Agri-FoodTech Leadership Hub?

The Leadership Hub is a new way for the brightest minds in agri-foodtech around the world to connect and develop, both personally and commercially.


The Leadership Hub is a free online peer-to-peer network and lifelong community for world-class founders, leaders, and innovators in the AgriTech and FoodTech sectors. Unlike an accelerator or an incubator, there is no fixed curriculum but a dynamic environment for you to grow at your own pace.

Being part of the Leadership Hub compares to being a part of an advisory board, by promoting accountability and efficiency whilst sharing and discussing with peers you can trust.

Our mission is to test, challenge and validate your business ideas. We dive deep into building your authentic leadership skills and personal brand to easily navigate growth and nurture the best in those around you.

Our goal is to prepare and support you for your next fundraise, help you find new international customers and solve key business challenges by networking, sharing and learning.

Key benefits:

Symbiotic and
non-competitive
peer-to-peer group

Connect with like-minded entrepreneurs in a confidential environment, where you get to help each other by discussing challenges, ideas and opportunities.

Personal and commercial growth opportunities

Boost your growth and improve your investment potential, accessing our Leadership Hub alumni group and a world-class investor and trade contacts network.

Expert speakers to share the latest in the industry

Experienced industry leaders - investors, sector specialists and industry influencers will be invited for ‘future thinking’ speaker sessions.

The Leadership Hub connected us to a lot of people in the UK and in Ireland. I gained an awful lot from it - even in the space of a few months, it can make a big difference.
