SAN FRANCISCO, March 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Amid the multitude of agriculture technology conferences new to the scene, there is only one that takes the conversation to the next level – GAI AgTech Week. Advanced by Global AgInvesting's (GAI) historical relationships in the investment sector, proven innovators and investors will be connected here on-the-spot, leading to enhanced collaboration and deal flow. All framed around two-and-a-half days of critical content delivered by the industry's most dynamic thought leaders.
This second annual GAI AgTech Week, which will take place in San Francisco, June 21-23, keeps pace with this exploding sector, where investments in start-ups more than doubled from 2014 to 2015, from $2 billion to $4.6 billion, according to the recently released AgTech Investing Report for 2015, published by AgFunder.
The AgTech Week agenda dives deep, bringing private equity partners to the table to continue where venture capital contributions leave off; introducing farmers who've tried new technologies and can speak to their successes and difficulties; and widening the possibilities of players in ag tech by showcasing new opportunities for partnerships.
Other innovative topics and interactive panels, presented by more than 50 top-of-their-game presenters, include:
- Advancing AgTech - Exploring the Role of AgTech Accelerators
- Secondary Impact: AgTech's Potential for Lenders, Land Managers and Farm Investors
