AgTech innovation is on fire. From vertical farming and aquaponics to open-source farming and farm management, there is a growing crop of startups using data and technology to make food production more sustainable, efficient and profitable.
Meet some these innovators at our next Food+Tech Meetup on Tuesday, January 12, and get an inside look at their business models, products, challenges and lessons learned.
There will also be networking and nibbles. More info coming soon!
