Want to invest in the foodtech and agtech revolution?

AgFunder Co-Investment Fund III is now open for investment. Closing June 15, Spots are limited.

Conservis is the industry leader in Enterprise Agriculture Management (EAM) and operates globally in the world’s $12 trillion agriculture industry. We are dedicated to changing the business of farming, one of the last digital frontiers.  While the industry has invested heavily in on-farm technologies, as a whole it is still in the early stages of adopting modern software tools.  The Company’s cloud-based platform offers farm owners and managers a software service to create operational plans, drive field activities and make better decisions. Reports are easily shared with partners, landowners, funders and insurance companies.

Conservis provides a unique and valuable career opportunity.  The company has an established market presence, a first mover position in farming enterprise software, a strong customer base, an innovative product platform and is clearly positioned to expand its industry leading market status.  We’re building a great company filled with exceptional people who inspire each other to perform at a high level.   We are fortunate to say that we make a difference every day and offer some of the most meaningful career opportunities in technology.  If you want to have a big impact on our success and want to lead and build a high performing team, we’d love to hear from you!
