With support from the Singapore Economic Development Board
Cargill is partnering with the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) to launch its first digital business studio in Asia. The studio is designed to support local founders with investments that bring Cargill solutions to the market and accelerate innovation for the food and agriculture industry in Asia-Pacific (APAC).
Through this three-year partnership, Cargill will develop a portfolio of at least five new startups in Singapore. The startups will focus on pressing industry challenges, from increasing access to market data for smallholder farmers to creating more efficient, transparent and cost-effective food supply solutions.
To lead these new startups, Cargill is immediately recruiting experienced entrepreneurs who are passionate about solving some of the most urgent problems facing our global food and agriculture system. Entrepreneurs will have access to investments in resources, business management and innovation processes proven in other markets.
The digital business studio will be a space for Cargill to incubate and scale transformative startups, in close partnership with customers. It allows for expanded reach into digital innovation, bringing new solutions to meet the changing needs of the food and agriculture industries.
