For a second year, World Agri-Tech is partnering with Radicle Growth, a San Diego-based accelerator fund, to host a Pitch Day. This presummit event will take place on Monday, March 18, 2019, prior to the start of the World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit (March 19 to 20, 2019, in San Francisco, California).

Who Should Enter?

Event coordinators are looking for ag tech and food tech early-stage start-ups from around the globe, especially entrepreneurs offering technology in automation, big data/artificial intelligence, biologicals, fintech, foodtech, IoT, robotics, seed, and genomics.

In order to be eligible for consideration, a start-up should have received a minimum of $100,000 in investment capital or have gone through a recognized seed accelerator program. Applications will be reviewed by the investment committee, who may request additional details before final selections are made.

In addition, each of the finalists will receive a complimentary delegate pass for the World Agri-Tech Summit to maximize their networking and learning opportunities.
