This week, AgFunder highlighted the Western Growers Center for Innovation and Technology, scheduled to open this October in Salinas. The Center will facilitate interaction, collaboration and networking opportunities between AgTech entrepreneurs, farmers and investors.  It will also provide start-ups with programs and mentoring assistance to help launch their businesses successfully.    

Not familiar with AgFunder? According to its website, AgFunder is an investment marketplace connecting accredited and institutional investors with global companies, both large and small, throughout the agriculture value chain.  What does that mean? Simply, it means entrepreneurs can concentrate on their ideas while AgFunder rounds up investors since they specialize in sourcing and identifying the best agriculture and AgTech opportunities out there.

“AgFunder’s interest in the WG Center for Innovation and Technology will help inform AgTech startups of the unique opportunity to connect with our members, learn the industry’s challenges with great specificity, and accelerate refined technology offerings to the marketplace,” said Hank Giclas, Western Growers senior vice president.
