Forbes magazine will focus on accelerating new technologies and capabilities in farming next July at the “Forbes Reinventing America: The AgTech Summit” in Salinas Valley, California.
Forbes, in partnership with SVG Partners and The Steinbeck Innovation Cluster, will host the invitation-only event to bring together several hundred of the smartest minds in Silicon Valley and global agriculture for the purpose of tackling some of the world’s most critical challenges.
From biotech and precision farming to big data’s role in feeding a planet of eight billion people, “Forbes Reinventing America: The AgTech Summit” will explore topics at the core of this vital trend, and promises to be the definitive gathering for leaders at the intersection of technology and agriculture.
The summit will feature award winners from the Thrive Accelerator program formed by SVG Partners for technology-enabled startups in the Precision Agriculture space.
