Curating Thought Leadership
Delivering our discoveries to the marketplace is embedded in the DNA of the Danforth Center. AgTech NEXT is designed to bring together a diverse group of people who are playing a critical role in accelerating innovation and building a more resilient future for food.
The Danforth Center has been curating and hosting industry events since 2009. Speakers, partners and attendees include some of the biggest players and decision makers in the industry. AgTech NEXT was launched in late 2019, and before we could gather, COVID-19 changed the world. While the pandemic prevented us from being together in our beautiful facility, it didn’t keep us from our work. Together our partners, speakers, and advisory board pivoted to deliver two successful online events in 2020 and 2021. This year we are anticipating a memorable event as we gather in person and online to reinvent a food system in crisis.
