DEMO DAY '20
in partnership with FORBES
WHEN AND WHERE
September 24th, 2:00pm – 4:00pm PDT
This past January, the award-winning THRIVE Accelerator Program selected 13 companies from the U.S., Canada, Australia, Chile, Portugal, and India to join its 2020 Cohort. Concluding its sixth year, THRIVE’s program was fiercely competitive with an acceptance rate of less than 3%. These 13 global companies are the cream of the crop and have undergone four months of intensive program curriculum in preparation for THRIVE’s Demo Day ’20 in partnership with Forbes.
Demo Day has historically taken place at the annual Forbes AgTech Summit in Salinas, CA every June. This year, in an effort to keep attendees safe and comfortable, THRIVE and Forbes will host Demo Day as a global virtual watch party—virtually convening the world’s top agricultural leaders, investors, and entrepreneurs looking to find solutions for the world’s most critical food and agricultural challenges.
