Ag Tech has enjoyed tremendous growth over the past few years as other sectors show signs of slowing down. Bridging the gap between Silicon Valley investors and Southern California founders has never been more important, as we create new technologies for water creation/conservation, sustainable protein, and plan for future population growth. Come learn about the newest developments in Agriculture Technology, and how to connect with Silicon Valley Venture Capitalists.


2016 AgTech Silicon Valley

RoysePresents1the Third Annual 2016 Silicon Valley AgTech Conference, May 6, 2016, bringing together farmers, technologists, venture capitalists and governmental representatives to discuss how technology will affect farming. AgTech, the idea of applying biotech, robotics, software and hardware technology to all aspects of farming, is a hot topic. The AgTech Conference will share the stories of these companies and those who invest in them. We will explore drones, big data, water, sustainability, biotech, cleantech, transportation, the sharing economy and more. See the latest agriculture and food technologies, hear from experts in the industry and meet with the top companies and investors in the space.

AGCO is looking for new and innovative technologies that are useful in agricultural production, including machinery, supply chain, data and monitoring. AGCO invests as a strategic partner, licensor and joint venture in promising new agtech and would like to see companies in the following areas:

1. Technologies that measure planting depths;
2. Granular yield monitors;
3. Real time soil nutrient, soil type, structure, compaction, OM and pH sensors;
4. Object avoidance or detection (low cost lidar, sensors, etc.); and
5. Biomass, forage, or sugar cane yield and quality sensors.

We have arranged for AGCO representatives to be at our Palo Alto offices for one day on September 30, 2015. If you have a new and exciting technology that you would like to pitch to AGCO, please submit your executive summary and pitch deck by September 1. Good luck!
