Investing in Agriculture – What Does the Future Hold?

September 8, 2020

Via Zoom

The Farm Foundation Forum took place on September 8, 2020. Speakers discussed the future of agricultural investments in several key areas, including new technology, land, commodity, and processing investments.

In each area, experts addressed what they saw as new market opportunities as well as sectors that are slowing down, especially in light of market changes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Looking through the lens of the pandemic, speakers addressed the near-term opportunities for agricultural investment as the pandemic runs its course, as well as opportunities that may emerge in the post-pandemic era.

Speakers include:
Kiersten Stead, Managing Partner, DCVC
Cristina Rohr, Principal of Investments, S2G Ventures
Joelle Faulkner, Founder and CEO, Area One Farms
Seana Day, Partner, Better Food Ventures
