Radicle teamed up with OurCrowd and Start-Up Nation Central on this Challenge (which was announced at the 2019 OurCrowd Global Investor Summit) to find the most promising agtech/foodtech startup in Israel. The winner of The Radicle Challenge Israel received Radicle’s first investment specifically targeted at entrepreneurs in Israel, a market showing significant growth and promise for agtech innovation.

“Weed resistance is a major threat to global food security and sustainability. Weeds continue to develop resistance and no longer respond to existing chemical herbicides,” said Efrat Lidor Nili, Co-CEO and Founder, WeedOUT. “The funding and collaboration with Radicle Growth provides us a huge opportunity to continue our mission to combat this issue that causes more than $40billion in global losses annually. We are honored to have been chosen as the winner of the Radicle Challenge Israel amidst a pool of strong agtech and foodtech innovators from across Israel.”
