AGRIthon is a 2-day intensive ideation jam and venture creation workshop to develop innovative solutions for smallholder farmers. The AGRIthon will take place on April 28-29th, parallel to this year’s Agritech Israel, one of the world’s most important exhibitions in the field of agricultural technologies, bringing together thousands of leading agricultural players from a around the world.
