2017: Kiwi AgTech takes centre stage
Over the past two years, Wharf42 has established significant partnerships to support and accelerate the growth of New Zealand’s rapidly emerging AgTech ecosystem.
In Silicon Valley, we are a Plug and Play Tech Center International Partner and a Global Outreach Partner of Silicon Valley Forum. We host the Wharf42 Meteoroid Program at the Plug and Play offices in Sunnyvale, CA.
In New Zealand, we support the commercialisation of complex research and IP from our Universities, Crown Research Institutes & the private sector, via WNT Ventures. A co-founder of WNT, we work with our Silicon Valley networks to provide some of the key global connectivity that will be necessary to scale and accelerate WNT’s investment opportunities.
In 2016, we initiated the first Silicon Valley AgTech Immersion Program & Conference with our Valley partner, Silicon Valley Forum. With our extensive contacts within the Silicon Valley AgTech start-up and investor ecosystem, we support New Zealand’s growing AgTech community connect and engage with both its Valley and wider North America market peers.
In April this year, we are once again supporting a large group of Kiwi AgTech participants take part in the 2017 Silicon Valley AgTech Immersion Program and Conference.
The following month, we are hosting Farming2020, a signature event for Techweek17. You can find out more details about this event and other exciting AgTech initiative planned for 2017 by visiting this site.
