Virtual Summit on AgTech
May 14, 2019 - May 16, 2019$5
The Virtual Summit on AgTech is an entirely online conference focused on expanding access to trends and issues in agriculture and technology. It is hosted by the Center for Private Equity and Venture Capital at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth. We aim to bring together some of the most important people, organizations, and ideas pushing this space forward in order to accelerate the spread of knowledge, create new connections, and generate ideas. This is our inaugural year, and we will be covering a wide range of cutting-edge topics with an impressive line-up of speakers.
The summit has two primary goals: 1) to provide a low-barrier way for the public to engage with the agtech field (registration will only require a small donation to charity, with no travel expenses involved); and 2) to reinforce the talent pipeline between students and entrepreneurs/investors.
Come join us to learn from and engage with our confirmed speakers, including:
· Ethan Brown, CEO and Founder of Beyond Meat
· Rob Leclerc, Co-Founder of AgFunder
· Mark Johnson, CEO and Co-Founder of Descartes Labs
· Michael Mazourek, Co-Founder of Row 7 Seed Company
· And many more from companies like Impossible Foods, AeroFarms, Iron Ox, and Indigo Ag.
Check out additional speakers and other information on our website at www.agtechsummit.org
In contrast to other conferences and gatherings, we are squarely focused on reducing barriers to access with simple, low-cost registration and the ability to engage from anywhere in the world. Registration requires a small contribution ($5 minimum) that will be donated to one of our non-profit partners. Our innovative platform for streaming – Crowdcast – will create an interactive environment where attendees can pose questions, vote on their favorites, and chat with each other.
Come join us May 14-16th for three days of thought-provoking talks and panels!
