Israeli agritech innovations come to Ukraine

On June 26, 2018 the most interesting for Ukrainian agribusiness Israeli startups will be presented at the event “Find your agritech. Israel” in Kyiv. Ukrainian agri companies will be able to find solutions for their business needs. The event is organized by Agrohub with the support of the Embassy of Israel to Ukraine and of Agroscope International.

Israeli startups Taranis, Sensilize, CropX, Netafim and ADAMA will present their solutions at the meeting. They are practically tested and successfully implemented.

During the event Israeli and Ukrainian experts will present the highlights of the agricultural sector in both countries: Olga Trofimtseva, Deputy Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine on European Integration; Elizabeth Solovyova, Commercial Attaché of the State of Israel in Ukraine; Petr Melnik, Executive Director of Agricom Group; Yulia Poroshenko, Founder and CEO of Agrohub; Kirill Krivolap, partner of Civitta, partner of Agrohub.

In addition, the Global Director of Innovation at the Adizes Institute, Nir Ben Lavi, will make a workshop for the participants of the event. He will give a lecture for the first time in Ukraine and will present the methodology of Systematic Innovations. “Innovation is not an abstract concept. Its effectiveness can be measured. For this there is a single criterion — return of investment. Therefore, I would advise to direct 75% of corporate innovations to increase productivity and cost optimization, and only 25% — to the development of new products, services and solutions, “— tells Nir Ben Lavi.

Also a business speed dating of 5 startups with Ukrainian agri companies will take place.

The event will be the first of a series of “Find your agritech” meetings with different countries that Agrohub plans to host.
