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.
IDENTIFY. ITERATE. SCALE PROVEN TECHNOLOGY.
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.
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.
