Digital Learning Series
Grow Asia's objective is to help smallholder farmers in ASEAN achieve greater prosperity and environmental sustainability. One way to do this is by driving the adoption of digital tools.
The Grow Asia Digital Learning Series brings together corporate leaders, AgriTech startups and ecosystem enablers to discuss and learn about emerging technologies, as well as to uncover opportunities for scalable, impactful digital solutions that could be adopted by smallholder farmers.
In 2019, we ran six events in Singapore on the topics of AgriTech landscape in Southeast Asia, drones, satellite data, scaling, corporate-startups partnerships and microfinance. Insights from each event are captured and shared on this website. In 2020, we will continue to explore more topics and create more bite-sized content to be distributed post-event.

The Grow Asia Digital Learning Series is one part of Grow Asia’s broader Digital program. Across six complementary activities, Grow Asia brings together business leaders, development actors and policymakers to accelerate the adoption of digital tools.
Grow Asia’s conversations with the region’s CEOs have revealed they believe digital technologies - such as tools for finance, logistics and learning - are set to positively transform the way smallholders interact with agribusiness. In concert, these tools have the potential to bring greater efficiency to value chains by significantly lowering transaction costs, while improving farmers’ prosperity.
