The Agritech Village is an innovation ecosystem in the Techfest National Innovation Start-up 2019 program.
Despite huge agricultural potentials, Vietnam still not has a great competitive advantage in the domestic and international markets. One of the indispensible reasons is that Vietnam has not yet applied advanced technology achievements in production and storage efficiently. Moreover, Vietnam's agricultural businesses, start-ups and investors still not are encouraged to research, invest and trade in agriculture, especially creative products.
Therefore, the agricultural technology village at TechFest Vietnam 2019 will promisingly provide an unprecedented space to connect parties of the startup business community in the Vietnamese smart agriculture field. The application of high technology in agriculture (Agritech) is the major national orientation during the industrialization and modernization of agriculture and rural areas. This is because agriculture 4.0 will be a revolution based on combinations between science and technology, between the needs of society and innovation. Startups can apply Smart farm model (producing value chain) and cross-technology industry platforms, such as 3D printing technology, IoT, Chat boxs, unmanned devices, Block chain, Nanotechnology ... into their agricultural production.
