Western Growers and S2G Ventures are seeking applications from start-up companies working on agricultural technologies to compete in the 2019 AgSharks® Competition. Selected entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to earn a $250,000 minimum investment and access to farmland to pilot their innovations.
If any WG member is currently working with an agtech startup, help them scale by encouraging them to apply for AgSharks. All applications can be submitted to www.wga.com/agsharks2019 and must be submitted by Friday, September 20, 2019.
The AgSharks Competition launched in 2017, and since then, three start-up companies have earned seed money to elevate their businesses to the next level. This year, five to six finalists will be selected to pitch their ideas to a panel of AgSharks, consisting of venture capitalists and fresh produce farmers, during the Western Growers’ Annual Meeting in Maui Hawaii on November 12, 2019.
