THRIVE Spring '16 Startups are the face of the "internet of food"

The mission of THRIVE AgTech is to create an ecosystem of development, acceleration and adoption where startups, investors and AgTech corporations come together to collaborate on agriculture technologies fortifying us for a future of heightened food demand. 

Each of THRIVE's 12 startups understands the challenges associated with meeting the food demands of the world's growing population. The technologies comprising THRIVE'S second startup class cover increasing crop yields, economizing field inputs, enhancing sustainability and environmental stewardship, and raising the accountability and quality of food production and distribution. 

After participating in THRIVE's eight-week seed accelerator, these twelve startups will demo their solutions during the Forbes AgTech Summit in Salinas, Ca. In addition to national coverage during the Forbes Innovation Showcase, the twelve THRIVE startups are also eligible for investment by THRIVE AgTech and long term access to the THRIVE AgTech partner ecosystem.
