We must also thank the support numerous sponsoring companies, which have shown that being present means doing business in this emerging sector. Thanks also to the Public Institutions, especially to the regional Goverment of Andalusia for their contribution and to the Ministry of Agriculture for their support, with the presence of the Minister of Agriculture himself in his first public act outside of Madrid.

2) In total there have been 23 million impacts on the Web, according to the reports of Tweetreach and Facebook Inside. This twitter analysis report shows 5 million hits (on 1,500 tweets analyzed ) .

3) An estimated business volume of € 230 million has been generated, including agreements between companies, alliances, contracts, financing of startups, and new clients for AgriTech companies.

4) 
8% of the startups of the 300 that have presented at the 14 satellite events have already obtained funding.

5) We have made an important map of innovation and the European ecosystem of agrifood startups.


6) We are building a bridge between the Silicon Valley ecosystem and the European ecosystem. The participation of Silicon Valley investors has been essential, and we will carry out future events together in Silicon Valley and Europe. (For exemple the upcomming event in Santa Clara in March 2019 ) 


7) The event has sparked an explosion of business between startups and investors, with a focus on the already emerging smartagrifood ecosystem.

8) 
The public-private partnership for the development of the smartagrifood ecosystem has proved very fruitful.


It is necessary to produce an annual report of the smart-agrifood ecosystem in Europe.
The Inside Forums of the event (Startup Cities, Technology Parks, Schools of Agricultural Engineering, Accelerators and Investors) have shown how this event can advance innovation from the different actors involved in Europe.


9) The Botom-up strategy of the 14 satellite events carried out with local ecosystems to promote the startup ecosystem has been fundamental, since most of the startups that were selected for the Elevator Pitch came from these events and have also received important mentoring for their search for funding.


10) Now we start working on next event on June 20th and 21th 2019 the roadmap to continue strengthening the Foundation and the European ecosystem of SmartAgrifood Startups.


In the meantime, the European Parliament has organized a preliminary presentation event on the 28th of February, 2019 at 9,00 at the Parliament's own premises (Room ASP-3H1) , which we would like to invite you to Mrs Clara Aguilera (the promoter of such a presentation event).
