WG 93rd Annual Meeting – AgSharks Workshop Advances Agricultural Technologies

AgSharks™ returns this year for another exciting competition. Western Growers’ AgSharks™ competition is the groundbreaking, collaborative forum that helps advance agricultural technologies within the fresh produce industry.

In 2017, start-up companies Hazel Technologies and AgVoice received a $2.25 million total investment offer from S2G Ventures (Seed 2 Growth). During this year’s session, an update will be given on the progress of their companies and technologies since the investment.

A new slate of agtech startups will then compete for venture capital investment opportunities. They will present new ideas in ag technology to a panel of AgSharks, consisting of member-judges and venture capitalists.

Expect another year of surprise and excitement as the AgSharks evaluate startups and technology for real-time investment opportunities. This workshop will happen on day three of the Annual Meeting – October 30 – from 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

The 93rd Annual Meeting will take place October 28-31, 2018, at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa. Register today to take advantage of the early bird pricing and save $150. Early bird pricing ends on September 1st.
