PMA Takes on Tech, Episode 15: Brazil - A Booming AgTech Ecosystem
/

In this episode, we continue our virtual tour to Brazil to explore the AgTech explosion. We discuss the flourishing tech and innovation ecosystem developing in the country. Startups in Brazil have access to a market with one of the highest levels of mobile saturation, a wide range of investment options from local and international Brazil-centric funds, and support from a government that has made driving business growth one of its key priorities. In agriculture specifically, Brazil has transformed itself from food importer into one of the world’s leading producers in less than 30 years. Brazil is the first tropical country to be among the world’s leading food exporters. It is now the leading producer and exporter of sugar, coffee and orange juice, and the second largest for beef, soybeans, tobacco and ethanol. With such growth in tech, innovation, and access to capital and talent in an Ag powerhouse, the AgTech sector is thriving. Listen to our discussion with the top people in Brazil making it happen.
