THRIVE Seed Camp 2017

10 companies, representing 5 different geographies, gathered in at the Taylor Farms building in Salinas, CA for the third annual THRIVE seed camp. After receiving 136 applications from 27 countries from around the world, the 10 finalists were selected with the help and guidance of THRIVE's corporate partners. Technologies in this year's cohort range from soil health and food safety and traceability, to decision making support, robotics and infrastructure. For the next 8 weeks the startups will work one-on-one with expert technology and horticulture mentors, and engage with farmers for deployment opportunities. In June, all ten finalists will pitch at the THRIVE DEMO day and participate in the Forbes AgTech Innovation Summit.
