26/07/2018: Aquaculture Innovation Europe

Investors from across the aquaculture space are gathering in London this September to hear from twelve of the most exciting emerging companies in fish health, nutrition and farm management, at the Aquaculture Innovation Summit.

We caught up with all 14 of the venture capital and private equity investors that will be attending the conference and asked what it is about the aquaculture space that appeals so much to them?

“Aquaculture has severely lagged other livestock farming industries such as Poultry and Hog when it comes to innovation. Aquaculture farmers today are producing near capacity yet production needs to more than double to meet global demand. Indeed, this is a sector that is ripe for major innovation and reinvention.” Said Gerard Chia, Investments & Portfolio Management, New Protein Capital.

“I believe we are facing a structural shift from land-based to ocean-based food production. Aquaculture, and game-changing aquaculture solutions, will be the key enablers to this shift. I find that to be a very, very attractive investment opportunity in the coming generation,” explained Christian Rangen, Group Chief Operating Founder, X2 Labs.

All 14 of the investors will form the judging panel for this year’s Innovation Awards. Taking place as part of the Aquaculture Innovation Summit, these awards provide a unique opportunity for emerging companies within fish health, nutrition and farming to pitch their novel technologies to a room of investors, big pharma and industry experts.

The final 12 emerging companies selected to present their technologies on-site at the Innovation Awards will be announced on July 20, 2018 and will be announced online.

Reduced rates to attend the event are available for emerging companies; in addition, the International Aquafeed network are eligible for a 10 percent discount on their pass using code IAF10.
