indiana agbiosciences innovation summit

Join us as we bring together industry leaders, entrepreneurs, scientists and investors to discuss accelerating innovation and attracting investment in the AgBiosciences industry.

Finding solutions to feed 9 billion people by the year 2050 is one of the biggest challenges facing our society today. To produce more food with fewer resources, the AgBiosciences industry will use innovation to improve crop yields, reduce food waste and protect our planet.

Indiana is an undeniable leader in AgBiosciences innovation with diverse agricultural production, creative entrepreneurs, cutting-edge research and intellectual property, and a global mindset. From Evansville to Albion, from Terre Haute to Milford and in Lafayette and Indianapolis, there are innovators creating new products and services that will help solve the global challenges. They also make significant contributions to Indiana’s economy.

We invite you to join us for the inaugural Indiana AgBiosciences Innovation Summit where we will bring together industry leaders, entrepreneurs, scientists and investors to discuss accelerating innovation and attracting investment in the Indiana AgBiosciences industry.
