Grand Farm Launches New Partnership Program
Grand Farm recently launched its first, official partnership program. The program will bring together (on location at Grand Farm and through Grand Farm’s extensive network) local, regional and global agtech leaders to help solve problems facing today’s farmers.
Partnerships are broken into three “tiers”, designed to be valuable to all partners and be as inclusive as possible. The partnerships provide access to farmland for experiments, access to Grand Farm’s event space for partners to host their own events, access to Grand Farm’s own events, and speaking/thought leader opportunities. Grand Farm partners will also have “first in” opportunities for future Grand Farm projects as well as committee opportunities. Partners will attend Grand Farm events, collaborate with other partners, and share in the research & knowledge generated by Grand Farm.
Grand Farm’s goal is a 100-partner network for 2021. Grand Farm’s first partners include:
