Europe’s top startups & scaleups driving AgriTech growth
Meet the 26 startups & scaleups that X-Europe will help sprout for the next 5 months.
Applications for X-Europe’s second cohort - AgriTech closed on 4 September 2020, after receiving 150 submissions (and 268 expressions of interest). A careful evaluation was made and 26 great AgriTech startups have embarked on their X-Europe journey and are now taking the first steps in the programme.
In their first week of the programme, the selected startups and scaleups were given tickets to #TNW2020, where they had the opportunity to connect with relevant partners and watch great sessions.
The companies were onboarded in a dynamic kick-off webinar, where they had the chance to meet the team behind X-Europe, present themselves, review the programme timeline, and learn all details about the services they will receive. The session was followed by an Investment Readiness training by TNW, the first of a series of group webinars.

What’s coming next?
The next few months will be full of opportunities. The startups and scaleups will start soon with their training days by Growth Tribe, the one-on-one mentoring sessions with an assigned mentor (where they will receive mentoring tailored to their needs), and have access to investment and corporate matchmaking services. They will also have support in advertising job openings and accessing talent on X-Europe platforms, as well as promotion opportunities.
