Inspired by the success of Western Growers’ technology events held during the last several Annual Meetings, the Colorado Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association (CFVGA) is holding a similar event during its 4th annual conference in Denver on February 20, 2018. CFVGA is currently requesting proposals from qualified startup companies that are innovating agtech solutions to meet the pressing demands and challenges of growers, shippers and fresh food processors. Proposals are due by December 20, 2017 and should be prepared in accordance with the RFP and sent to [email protected].
The pitch will be moderated by James Pritchett, Executive Associate Dean for the College of Agricultural Sciences at Colorado State University (CSU) and assisted by Robert Sakata, President of CFVGA.
The four companies selected will be subjectively evaluated by session panelists and the audience based on the criteria listed in the Request for Proposal. A ‘Panelists’ Favorite’ and ‘Audience Favorite’ award will be presented at the end of the workshop. For details, view CFVGA’s full Request for Proposal.
