SAN FRANCISCO, May 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A just-announced opportunity will reward a select group of agtech entrepreneurs with the opportunity to deliver a live presentation before veteran investors, agribusiness executives and accelerators in the agtech sector. Candidates from around the globe are invited to apply for the possibility to present at the upcoming GAI AgTech Week conference at the Grand Hyatt San Francisco, June 21-23, 2016.
Open to investment-ready agricultural technology companies that have raised a minimum of US$500,000 and are currently raising capital, interested parties are asked to apply online. The application asks for details such as capital raised to-date, problems solved by the company's technology, and management team composition. Applicants can increase their visibility in front of the GAI AgTech Week community of investors by submitting a short video for online viewers and conference attendees. Applications and videos must be submitted by Tuesday, May 31.
Presenters will be selected by veteran investors in the agtech sector and the GAI team. Each will earn an invitation to present live in "The Capital Grill," a special pitch session on Wednesday, June 22, led by an international panel of active investors and accelerator professionals. Immediate feedback will be given by the panel of experts.
Additionally, approved video submissions will be highlighted during the networking breaks at the conference, as well as uploaded to the GAI AgTech Week YouTube channel.
"These agtech entrepreneurs will have the very real potential of furthering their business along the path to commercialization or exit," said Kate Westfall, GAI AgTech Week director. "We expect hundreds of decision makers – from leading venture capital to private equity funds to strategic investors and investment banks – to be in attendance and ready to invest in the latest and greatest companies in this burgeoning sector."
