About AFN

Reporting from the frontlines of the food revolution.

AFN is a news site dedicated to publishing daily, original news about the burgeoning foodtech and agtech (“agrifoodtech”) startup and venture capital industry. Born from the leading venture capital firm AgFunder, and previously called AgFunderNews, our coverage includes:
  • Original, independent and often exclusive reporting on investment across agrifoodtech.
  • Exclusive interviews with leading entrepreneurs, investors and corporates.
  • Features on the latest technology trends in food and agriculture.
  • Live reporting from agri-foodtech conferences worldwide.
  • The latest research & data about the industry, including AgFunder’s global investment reports.

We also have an events calendar and a jobs board.

Our free weekly newsletter includes the top headlines from the pages of AFN that week, as well as a roundup of global media coverage, and a list of job openings in the sector. Sign up here.

Occasionally we also include news about our parent company, the online venture capital firm AgFunder, such as news about portfolio companies and early access to our investment funds. All of this content, and any sponsored content, is clearly signposted.
