The largest user of water globally is agriculture, so where are the opportunities for technology companies and investors?
Join us for a discussion focused on the ‘Water-tech’ vertical within the Ag-tech industry. Ag-tech is a roughly $10 billion global market that’s projected to double by 2025, according to Juniper Research. So, where are the opportunities for the 'Water-tech' wedge in that pie?
Our featured presenters will discuss the water-related challenges faced by growers, including: the inability to understand next season’s precipitation forecast, water availability (eg: surface, ground, snowmelt, or alternative sources), and soil moisture/irrigation. Tech solutions exist to address all of these challenges, but an understanding of head/tailwinds, the competitive landscape, submarkets, and which founders/companies are backable is fundamental to success.
