Zi Xiang (Aco)
Co-Founder, Langit Collective
Zi Xiang co-founded Langit Collective in 2015, a social enterprise that aims to bridge the rural and urban divide by linking subsistence indigenous farming communities to the market. Zi Xiang is an actuary turned social entrepreneur/apprentice farmer. He’s now in the fields working with and learning from the indigenous communities to understand how they have been living sustainably off their ancestral lands and stewarding their environment to provide continuous sustenance. As the world is embarking on precision agritech, Langit Collective is espousing the anti-narrative of food sustainability through indigenous heirloom crops and traditional farming wisdom.
Rachel is passionate about the intersection of sustainability, business and technology, and wants to help make sure the world doesn’t exist one-third rich and two-thirds hungry. Through AgriMatch, an agri-tech social enterprise founded under the Telenor Youth Forum and Nobel Peace Foundation, we aim to empower farmers by optimising the agri-value chain and combating food insecurity with digital connectivity.
