Drone Ag and BioScout – Successful Week in Saskatchewan
Global Agri-Food Advancement Partnership
Ag in Motion (AIM) has come and gone, but the connections are just getting started. In partnership with SREDA and Ag-West Bio, GAAP welcomed the winners of the Voyage Program, Drone Ag (UK) and BioScout (Aus) during the week of the show. Both companies participated in the Ag Tech Breakfast and the Sask Young Ag-Entrepreneur Cultivating Connections Happy Hour event and took in all AIM had to offer.
Ag Tech Breakfast
A room full of start-ups, producers, investors, and mentors came together at the Ag Tech Breakfast, the sold-out event featured a Speed Pitch where 15 companies gave a 30 second introduction followed by a speed-date style networking event. This was a great place for potential trial users and collaborators to hear what each company had to say.
SYA Cultivating Connections Happy Hour
Sask Young Ag had a happy hour event, it followed the same speed-date style networking, but each table had a unique and well-known mentor for the young members to chat with and learn from. Sitting in the Knowledge Tent with all the young ag innovators, you could feel the waves of knowledge flowing around each table. By the end of the event people were hanging back, wanting to soak up every minute with the industry leaders in the room.
GAAP offered Drone Ag and BioScout valuable opportunities to connect. They connected with producers that are looking to include innovative practices on their own farms; with investors and collaborators wanting to support local access to global technologies; and finally, with mentors that can help them build success in Saskatchewan.
We're excited to announce they will be doing commercial trials with our farm partners.
