Marieke de Ruyter de Wildt Founder, The Fork

Not only was the kick-off very refreshing, the whole convention was packed with nice inspiring surprises. The crowd truly reflected the agricultural ecosystem, very international, all ages, different backgrounds and full of commitment to make sense out of data for better food.

A timely and well-articulated event with a clear message – leverage data to predict, prescribe, and produce more food, more sustainably. It was a great platform to provide practical solutions and participate in a dynamic networking experience, from which I have been able to mine and build relationships that continue to create strategic value and benefit.

The convention is focused on getting people together and opening the conversation. It is a great opportunity to get the big data in agriculture revolution really moving.

The convention offered a glimpse into the huge potential of unlocking our databanks to develop user-friendly technologies capable of driving food system transformation. Big data is at the heart of the future and the transformation of outcome delivery.
