SEED ACCELERATOR

The THRIVE Accelerator select 10-12 AgTech startups for each of its annual cohorts to participate in an 8-week virtual accelerator program. Throughout the the program on an ongoing basis, companies will have one-on-one mentorship and engagement with top tier industry leaders in agriculture and technology, take advantage of field and value chain deployment opportunities, access investment opportunities, and incubation services. 

We run a seed accelerator program virtually each spring, with a live demo day each summer at the Forbes AgTech Summit each summer.

THOUGHT LEADERSHIP

 

THRIVE 50 COMPANIES

The THRIVE 50 is the culmination of six months of interviews, surveys and discussions with corporate partners to define specific pain points facing agriculture companies and create a framework to identify promising agtech companies. Based on the input provided by corporate partners in 2016, companies selected were required to fall within Series A-C, have a product in-market, have paying customers and have a solution in biotechnology, cloud Services/SaaS, big data analytics, robotics & automation, connected devices, or supply chain & infrastructure.
