Silicon Valley Forum’s Seeds of Our Future Immersion Program invites global AgTech innovators on an intensive four-day journey through Silicon Valley, Salinas, and Napa Valley. An increasing global population and dwindling resources are some of the biggest challenges we face, and innovation in agricultural technology is key for sustaining and improving the way our farmers seed, grow and harvest their products. Join us this August for an immersive 4-day program of interactive discussions, where you will:
- Learn about cutting edge innovation in agricultural technology
- Hear from agtech-facing startups: their challenges and successes
- Engage with Venture Capitalists to understand how they see the future of investing
- Talk to farmers who have partnered with technology companies (on location in Salinas and Napa)
- Meet potential partners, investors, and customers
About the Seeds of Our Future: Since the inaugural event in 2016, the Seeds of Our Future has brought together tech innovators, startups, investors, farmers, universities, governments, and industry experts to connect on topics such as automated farms, food safety and traceability, controlled environments, UAVs, and much more. California is home to the world’s most productive seats of both technology and agriculture, and this program examines the ways in which we can bridge the two and build a better future.
The Seeds of Our Future Immersion Program will be held August 20-23, 2019, and will tour through a variety of locations in Silicon Valley, Salinas, and Napa Valley. You’ll have the opportunity to tour working farms and agricultural centers, and visit innovative companies and startups working in biotech, agtech, drones and UAV, big data/IoT, and much more.
