But beyond the numbers,accelerator is also a story of ambition: the ambition to improve the working conditions of farmers, the ambition to offer healthy food to consumers, the ambition to create value in a sustainable way while respecting the environment.
It is also a human adventure, where Hectar realizes its vocation as an agricultural ecosystem by creating synergies: all day long, startups, VCs, partners, learners, mentors were able to meet and exchange, to co-construct the future of agriculture and food.
A big thank you to all our partners who made this adventure possible: TIMAC AGRO France - Naturalia France - Parfums Christian Dior - Sucden Ventures
