Agricultural Technology Sector Primed to Explode!

AG Chat Interview Series Explores Opportunities & Investment In The Fertile Technology Bioeconomy

Some of you may recall the high-tech boom that began in the late 80s/early 90s when the IBMs, Apples, Unisys’s and Honeywells of the world unleashed a torrent of major innovation.

Well, it appears the agricultural technology sector is on a similar trajectory and may be about to break out in spectacular fashion.

According to Dave Smardon, President and CEO of Bioenterprise Corporation, ag tech is in the “embryonic” stage—teeming with innovations that may revolutionize everything from fuel to pharmaceuticals—and the venture capital community is watching closely.

In this episode of AG Chat, Smardon takes us on an in-depth tour of the burgeoning bioeconomy: Which technologies to watch? Who’s investing? Exit strategies? Deal size?
