Government agencies and business organizations in Montana have teamed to announce the inaugural Montana AgTech Innovation & Investment Summit set for Jan. 24, 2023, in Great Falls.

The event will be presented by the Montana Department of Agriculture, Montana State University, Montana Agricultural Business Association, and Montana Agricultural Business Foundation.

The summit will bring together innovators, entrepreneurs, agriculture producers, agricultural industry product development professionals, and capital investors with the primary goal of moving agricultural technologies from concept stage to development stage, then into the hands of agricultur producers and their markets.

Join researchers, entrepreneurs, capital allocators, fund managers, industry executives, and public economic development leaders who unite to raise capital, negotiate deals, and lean into developing the burgeoning climate for Montana's growth in Ag Tech and Innovation. Opportunities include a speed pitch session, panel discussion from supporting venture capitalists and investor experts, discussions with Montana’s Ag Influencers, and several slotted networking segments.

The speed pitch session consists of innovators and start-ups pitching their new and dynamic solution for 60 seconds from the event’s main stage. Members of the audience will vote for the top two in each category.  These audience selected winners will have the opportunity later in the event to pitch their solution to a panel of investor experts.

A call for presentations, sponsorship support, and attendance will be coming in the next few weeks. To request more information, email [email protected] or visit https://www.mtagtechinvest.io.
