International professionals leading the Agtech supply chain come together to share initiatives and spur innovation.

Press Release – The 2019 Sustainability & Digitalization Leaders forum is fast becoming the exclusive conversation series every thought leader in agtech should be a part of. Announcing the next cohort of speakers to present this October 22-24, the agenda demonstrates an awareness of the most relevant sustainability issues across the current landscape, from land degradation to carbon sequestering; cell cultured meats to regenerative urban food systems.

Featured presentations from global innovators include: impact and long term predictability of extreme weather patterns; regenerative practice of soil and land masses; the role and security of ground level farmers in a fast moving agricultural landscape. As companies continue to develop at the intersection of agriculture and emerging innovation, harnessing and deploying new technologies sustainably remains a roadblock.

Alongside SDL speakers including Mars, Rabobank, AeroFarms and Microsoft, the next round of international thought leaders have been confirmed:

  • Adam Bergman – SVP, Head of AgTech Practice, Wells Fargo
  • Jasmine Crowe – CEO, Goodr
  • Ed Smith – Head of Indigo Carbon, Indigo
  • Lloyd Day – Deputy Director General, IICA
  • Kraig Westerbeek – Senior Director, Smithfield Renewables
  • Ingrid Fung – Investment Associate, Finistere Ventures
  • Kevin Krueger – Procurement & Sustainability, St Jude Children’s Research Hospital
  • Michelle Adelman – CEO, Infinite Foods
