Startup Weekend

We bring together a diverse group of people passionate about innovating the agriculture industry to meet the demands of our growing global population. In 54 hours, participants share ideas, form teams, build products and launch agriculture or food ventures. 

Startup Weekend Agriculture & Food begins with open-mic 60-second pitches Friday night that result in the formation of small teams around the best, most viable concepts. Teams spend Saturday and Sunday focusing on validating their idea by talking to users, designing/building prototypes and building a business plan with the help of experienced coaches from the agricultural industry. On Sunday, teams present and demo their products and receive valuable feedback from a panel of expert judges.
