Entrepreneur User Guide:
Read the relevant Agtech Toolkit page prior to asking growers for their time, please!
This enables you to efficiently do the foundational work to determine whether or not the addressable market is potentially large enough without wasting a farm operator’s valuable time.
It will also help you to more intelligently target farmer interviewees and to ask better questions and gain more from farmer interviews.
Investor User Guide:
This resource might also be helpful for investors lacking specific knowledge of agricultural markets. Use it in your due diligence process (and please remember to cite it!)
Grower User Guide:
The goal of this resource is to consolidate growers’ voices into one space for easy access by entrepreneurs. We encourage growers to forward this page to entrepreneurs that you speak with, and encourage new technologists to read through it prior to booking time with you. Entrepreneurs will still need to speak and work directly with farmers and farm workers to effectively design solutions.
If you’re a farmer and you want to accelerate the development of technology for your operation, please engage with this page and with founders, and give us your direct advice and feedback as frequently as you are able to.
We’ll be updating the Ag Toolkit regularly. All pages will be reviewed and updated on a quarterly basis, and we will consider public comments (submit them here!) in prioritizing updates and additions.
