Cultivating the Future of Digital Agriculture – Together!

We believe breakthroughs come from people, not technologies. That’s why AgroStart by BASF invests a lot in community. And not just with start-ups, but also like-minded academics, investors, industry leaders and others who care deeply about transforming our food system. Meet our alumni and help us cultivate the future of digital agriculture – together!


Our community is always on

The AgroStart Community is a constantly growing ecosystem of luminaries building or investing in novel AgTech solutions. We host live-streaming events, a community chat and other opportunities for good ideas to spread and meaningful connections to be made. If you believe strangers are just friends you haven’t met yet, then grab your AgroStart NFT and become part of the conversation.

We love our alumni

These amazing start-ups participated in AgroStart to craft and deploy powerful digital solutions that improve yields, increase climate resilience and strengthen the farms’ bottom-line.


Feedback from our start-up partners

Our start-up partners almost always stretch us (in good ways!). The AgroStart offer of mentorship and access to customer, data and pilot resources usually results in a “win-win”:

AgroStart enabled us to quickly adapt our technologies to real-world requirements. This would have been a major challenge without the support of their team and well-structured platform.

AgroStart helped us accelerate our product development by working hand-in-hand with BASF experts. It is a perfect forum to understand the market, real-life farm problems and how a start-up like us can integrate itself.



Irving Rivera

Co-founder + CEO, Solena

We gained insight from participating in AgroStart that made our solution more user-friendly. And now having BASF as a client gives us instant credibility and helps our company stand out.
