Western Growers has again partnered with S2G Ventures (Seed 2 Growth) to host AgSharks, a challenge where start-up companies can compete for a minimum of $250,000 in investment capital to support the development and growth of their businesses. Applications are now open, and all entrepreneurs and startups looking to innovate solutions for the agricultural sector are eligible to apply.

If any WG member is currently working with a startup or know of an entrepreneur or company who is developing ag technologies, help them scale by encouraging them to apply for AgSharks. All applications can be submitted to and must be submitted by September 30, 2018.

AgSharks premiered last October, where two agtech startups – Hazel Technologies and AgVoice  – received a $2.25 million total investment offer from S2G Ventures. This year, five finalists will be selected to pitch their ideas to a panel of AgSharks, consisting of venture capitalists and fresh produce farmers, during the WG 93rd Annual Meeting in Palm Desert on October 30, 2018.
