Who we are


THRIVE AgTech connects the expertise of tech companies to on-the-ground knowledge of agricultural companies, the financial backing of investors, and the innovation of entrepreneurs. The THRIVE ecosystem brings these communities together to meet the global food demands of the future. 

SVG Partners and THRIVE are pleased to provide you with an invitation to attend a very special event: the third Annual Forbes AgTech Summit, to be held June 28 & 29th, 2017. 

In partnership with SVG Partners, Forbes will host the third annual Forbes AgTech Summit in the salad bowl capital of the world, Salinas, CA. The Forbes Summit represents the foremost opportunity to hear from the smartest minds in both the Silicon Valley and global agriculture tackling critical challenges facing the industry. From biotech to precision farming, to big data’s role in feeding a planet of nine billion people. The summit will also showcase the latest innovations and startups for growers, investors, and stakeholders of the global agricultural ecosystem.

The summit is an invitation-only event and SVG Partners is pleased to offer our community of global agtech entrepreneurs, experts and leaders a special $250 discount. 

If you are interested in sponsorship please get in touch with us. 

The most monumental shift in history is taking place right now.


By 2050, the population will increase to 10 billion people while the world’s middle class will increase from 1.5 billion to 4.5 billion. To meet future food demands, global production will need to increase by 70%. Applying technology will be the key.

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.





Open Innovation at THRIVE AgTech offers startups and corporations the opportunity to identify, iterate, prove, and scale new technologies together. Such collaborations build the trust and credibility that are critical to making inroads to the broader agriculture community.



THRIVE affiliates comprise a global network of agtech focused startup accelerators and incubators, universities, government, and other regional agtech initiatives. Affiliate members are critical to scaling regional agriculture technologies to the international level by sharing regional resources, opportunities and contacts. 







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.
