AgTech Industry Connect – March 2024

March 4 @ 12:00 pm - March 5 @ 7:00 pm CST


Agtech Industry Connect

Event Description

Held in tandem with the AgTech Innovation Summit, the AgTech Industry Connect program provides an opportunity for teams to network with hundreds of attendees and representatives from major agricultural companies. At the end of the Summit, teams will be invited to participate in the AgTech Showcase, where they will be able to present their ventures to attendees. Teams will attend a workshop prior to the AgTech Summit to prepare them for the opportunity, learning how to condense their pitch to make valuable connections as quickly as possible.


Through this program, teams will be able to:

  • Learn from potential customers – validate the problem
  • Get feedback on whether their innovation addresses customer needs – validate the solution
  • Connect to potential industry partners
  • Gain exposure to investors
