Unifying a vast array of resources to support agri-food innovators.
The AgSprint Unformula
Pilot & Demonstrate
Demonstrate in commercial scale settings with our partners for field trials and pilot projects to reduce risk and improve market viability.
We’re pleased to announce a new 2019 partnership with the Brackish Groundwater National Desalination Research Facility. The 40-acre facility includes offices for researchers, a water analysis laboratory and monitoring room, indoor test bays, test fields, evaporation pond, and greenhouses.
Capital is fuel. But, winning capital can be quite an odyssey. Having the right existing relationships and knowing where to look is more than half the battle. We ditch pitch days and instead curate one-on-one “Deal Room” meetings. Entrepreneurs can directly interact with the Arrowhead Innovation Fund, corporate venture groups, banks, investor networks, and foundation and grant experts, to help jump start the fundraising process. We’ll even help you prepare cap tables, projections, forecasts, and grant budgets for financing opportunities. Oh, and, one team will receive a $20,000 award.
NSF Lineage & Cash
The initial three weeks of AgSprint curriculum will follow an NSF Innovation Corps (I-Corps) training model to test the feasibility of your business idea. Through participation in AgSprint, you will receive $2,000 in participant support and attain the lineage necessary to compete for $50,000 through NSF I-Corps.
