Earlier this week, the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center and Larta Institute hosted this year’s Ag Innovation Showcase. Husch Blackwell LLP was proud to sponsor and have several of our attorneys attend this event. This year’s attendance surpassed 400 and registration was closed due to excess demand.
The Ag Innovation Showcase is an annual event that features the latest developments that will impact the future of agribusiness. This year’s presenters included a Husch Blackwell client and other start-up companies with inventions and ideas ranging from a mobile-to-cloud platform for storing and analyzing farm data to the use of new biological solutions. Another session focused on the high demand area of sustainable solutions in the agricultural field.
The Showcase serves as an opportunity for industry members to not only learn about emerging technologies, but it also provides an opportunity for startups to present their companies to venture capital and other funding sources eager to invest in the next generation of successful agricultural companies.
