AGRITHON: From Smallholder Challenge to Agritech Solution

November 15-16, 2015

Smallholder farmers produce more than half of the world’s food today. Increasing their yields and market access are fundamentally important in order to ensure adequate global food supply as the century progresses. For the first time at Agritech Israel, The Pears Program in cooperation with the Israeli Export Institute held an exciting side-event – AGRIthon a 2-day hackathon to develop innovative solutions for smallholder farmers.

The Agrithon collected from NGOs, governments and companies dealing with smallholders some of their most pressing challenges. Over the course of two days, 40 outstanding Israeli innovators, entrepreneurs and experts got together to generate creative solutions to these challenges.
