From Farms to Foodies: Innovation in Agriculture and Food Distribution

Join Cleantech GroupSilicon Valley Bank, and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati February 14th for an intimate, invitation-only, breakfast discussion on innovation in agriculture and food distribution

Driven by predictions of severe climate change impacts on agriculture, an aging farm workforce, population growth and rising food demand, and uncertainty about water supply given recent droughts, the agriculture and food industries are searching for solutions to help manage a changing landscape. Amidst these drivers, a growing field of companies are creating new solutions that harness the rise and application of big data, lower cost sensors, and an increasingly connected supply chain from farm to restaurant.

This Power Breakfast brings together top players from the Central Valley, the Bay Area, and around the US to discuss how these new innovations are already impacting the agriculture and food supply chain, and the opportunities that corporates, startups, and investors see in this space.
