Techstyle

 
 

We definetechstyleas the intersection of technology and lifestyle. We are looking for innovations improving sustainability in the agriculture & food and textiles & apparel industries focusing on one or more of the following areas.

For supply chain efficiency & digitization, we look for technologies that enable better and more efficient supply chains and production processes. 

We also focus on new ingredients, materials and product innovations powered by technologies such as synthetic biology, that help improve sustainability in the agritech & food or apparel & textiles industries.

Our last key area of interest is platforms & business models that drive greater sustainability and empower circularity.
