Digitising the food supply chain
AgriTech Bridge powered by Barclays Eagle Labs funded by UK Government
In collaboration with CodeBase, we have developed a new programme, AgriTech Bridge, that brings together some of the UK's leading corporations and most promising startups. This programme allows some of UK’s biggest firms to share experiences and connect and learn both with peers and startups working in the industry.

How is the programme delivered?
This is a seven module programme that will run until March 2024 with workshops taking place fortnightly. It is delivered via a combination of virtual and in-person sessions through a series of themed meetups that brings together business and industry experts as well as leaders from established food supply or agriculture companies and startups to work towards a sustainable food supply chain.
Each of the seven modules is designed to expose food supply chain businesses and the AgriTech start-ups to core strategic thinking and best practices and will cover relevant topics that ensure a valuable exchange about innovation.
Technology can help redefine food production systems, however we understand how hard it is for larger food supply chain companies and startups to work together to help tackle some of the challenges the industry faces. Through the Eagle Labs AgriTech Bridge programme, we help surface these challenges to collectively come up with new solutions to age-old problems.
Who’s it for?
The programme is aimed at corporates and startups involved at any stage of the food supply chain, from field to fork.
Through monthly physical & virtual meetings in a safe, innovative space we’re able to share ideas and combine expertise around specific shared challenges to work towards a sustainable solution.
Food supply or AgriTech startups or startups whose products, services or innovations can be applied to the food supply chain will be able to build deeper domain expertise and meet larger businesses from the industry to expand their network and potentially provide solutions or proofs-of-concept for larger businesses.
Incumbent businesses are introduced to new technologies, practices, skills and cultures to help transform and accelerate innovation in their business.
CodeBase is the UK’s largest startup incubator, home to more than 100 of the country’s best technology companies. We champion businesses tackling big challenges with technology, and work tirelessly to support the development of a more diverse and competitive European digital industry.
Steve Shearman, founder eCERTO, a cohort one start-up said:
“The EnergyTech programme is a hyper accelerant and provides the framework to really engage with leaders around hard to solve problems and quickly leverage technology regardless of company size. After just three sessions, the relationship building and quality of conversation is hugely refreshing. In addition, engagement outside the scheduled meetings is building a genuinely strong and cohesive cohort and peer group.”
