The Root of It: Rejuvenating the Ag Ecosystem (A Three-Part Series)

In this three-part series, we will begin with a recount of how we built one of the most successful supply chains in the world and how ultimately this success led to the challenges we face today.

As we look for solutions, our second session will draw from other sectors for inspiration on how we can bring “New DNA” into agriculture.

Our series will close off with an open dialogue about how to create a better innovation system through the lens of a startup and industry leading CEO.
