Morrison Foerster is proud to sponsor the World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit, March 14–15, 2023, in San Francisco. The summit invites founders, corporates, investors, and experts from the agri-food community to connect and think about the challenges in agriculture and food in new and innovative ways. The program includes two days of in-person sessions and networking.

MoFo Partner Susan Mac Cormac will participate as a panelist on Day 1 of the conference in the session titled "Impact Finance: Attracting Climate Investment into Ag Innovation." The panel will discuss the following topics:

The influx of venture funding to support climate tech, sustainability, and natural resources has continued in the past year. How is this trend creating new opportunities for entrepreneurs and innovators?

  • What investment opportunities are these funds exploring in agriculture and food? Why have agriculture and food been harder than other sectors and how do we unlock more capital in this space? How do we educate both investors and entrepreneurs and connect them to farmers and the industry so we can build capacity while optimizing the impact of capital?
  • What does impact investing look like to investors through the lens of precision agriculture and sustainable farming? How do we measure and create a currency of impact?
