Kansas City-based TechAccel and the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis are working together to bring agriculture innovations to the marketplace. A $250,000 grant from the Danforth Center will encourage projects expected to produce new assets– license-ready technology, processes or products, or new spin-off companies.
“This partnership with the Danforth Center is an important milestone for TechAccel and the agriculture ecosystem,” said Michael Helmstetter, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive of TechAccel. “Agriculture research can and will change the world, but only if it has the backing to move from concept to proof to product. We bring capital coupled with science advancement to support that push to the finish line—the commercial market.”
