  • An agro technology revolution is feeding the world

    Consumers want all year-round healthy and sustainable fruit and vegetables wherever they live.

    Now, with football on the brain, we meet Nikolaj Thomassen, founder of the Danish company, Next11 Technologies, which has developed a novel smart football tracking system for individual and team training. It is ready to be launched to the mass market this month.
