We are excited to be a Media Partner for Global AgInvesting’s 3rd Annual AgTech Week in Boston! The event will be held at the Marriott Long Wharf from June 26-28. There will be 19 panels and presentations including “Accelerating the Speed of AgTech Innovation,” “Funding AgTech – Lessons Learned from Investor Veterans,” and “Examining a Global Opportunity – Delivering AgTech to Emerging Markets.” The Branchfood community will receive a 15% discount off tickets by using the code “ATW17-Branchfood”.
GAI’s decision to move AgTech Week from San Francisco to Boston reflects the rise of food and agriculture development in our city. For the fourth consecutive year Massachusetts ranked #1 in innovation according to the Massachusetts Innovation Economy Annual Index. Oset Babur of The Guardian recently wrote, “Boston’s strong entrepreneurial spirit, combined with progressive legislation like the passing of Article 89, has also turned Boston into one of the nation’s hubs for urban agriculture.”
Branchfood will be present at the event, and looks forward to learning about the future of agtech investment. Stay tuned, as we will be sharing information about up-and-coming agtech companies on social media. If you will be attending AgTech Week this year, reach out on social media so that we can connect!
