Our Agritech Connector Tour has pivoted online.
If you only make one zoom webinar this year, choose this one! We have so much to share and will introduce some of the hottest local agritech startups, plus new tools and support. We will also provide an update on what’s happening with the Agritech Industry Transformation Plan (ITP). Please join us online to create connections, discover the latest industry news and explore innovations.
We can’t wait to get back on the road and will let you know when we have new 2022 dates to visit your city. Until then, let’s stay connected!
