The event will convene movers and shakers in both the Silicon Valley and global agriculture tackling challenges facing the industry. Attendees will get to take part in plenary sessions led by industry experts, visit nearby fields and plants to demo new technologies first-hand, try the region’s best wines and beers, enjoy foods made from local produce, and more.
The summit also will showcase the latest innovations and startups for growers, investors, and stakeholders of the global agricultural ecosystem.
In addition to the Summit, THRIVE will be hosting a Demo Day at California State University, Monterey Bay’s Salinas City Center. After a keynote by Taylor Farms CEO and Chairman Bruce Taylor, THRIVE’s cohort of 10 companies will deliver their pitches to potential investors, partners, and media.
