Description: Silicon Valley Forum’s Seeds of Our Future AgTech Summit & Immersion Program invites global AgTech innovators and supporters on a four-day journey through Silicon Valley, Salinas, and Napa Valley. Day 1 kicks off with an incredible Summit filled with discussions, workshops, and relationship building opportunities from industry experts who are leading the way in AgTech! Following the Summit is an interactive 3-day experience at farms, startups, wineries, and companies throughout the most innovative farming and wine making regions in California.
An increasing global population and dwindling resources are some of the biggest challenges we face, and innovation in agricultural technology is key for sustaining and improving the way our farmers and winemakers seed, grow and harvest their products. Join us this August for a behind the scenes look at the future of farming and agriculture, where you will:
- Learn about cutting edge innovation in agricultural technology
- Hear from agtech-facing startups: their challenges and successes
- Engage with Venture Capitalists to understand how they see the future of investing
- Talk to farmers who have partnered with technology companies (on location in Salinas and Napa)
- Meet potential partners, investors, and customers
About the Seeds of Our Future: Since the inaugural event in 2016, the Seeds of Our Future has brought together tech innovators, startups, investors, farmers, universities, governments, and industry experts to connect on topics such as automated farms, food safety and traceability, controlled environments, UAVs, and much more. California is home to the world’s most productive seats of both technology and agriculture, and this program examines the ways in which we can bridge the two and build a better future.
