Applications Now Open for Innovators to Pitch Tech During CO Conference

Calling all tech innovators! The Colorado Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association invites companies with tech solutions for the most pressing issues in the produce sector to submit a proposal to pitch at the 2018 CFVGA annual conference, February 20 in Denver, Colorado. 

Four businesses will be selected for the “Produce Innovation Tech Pitch” to deliver a brief presentation to a panel of judges and an audience of 300 conference attendees. The event will be followed by Q and A from judges, who will be comprised of lenders and venture capitalists.

Two winners will be selected to receive business services from the Western Growers Center for Innovation and Technology and specific legal services from Holland and Hart LLP.  Additionally, winners will receive one year membership in Western Growers and Colorado Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association plus publicity through CFVGA.

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 the CFVGA Produce Innovation Tech Pitch.

Please review the RFP for more details.
