Here’s Why You Should Attend This Summit:

#1 – Slash Your Learning Curve

So many people are getting started in Vertical Farming, Urban Ag, and the future of AgTech. There’s a lot to learn and we see a lot of people reinventing the wheel. Learn how to keep up with rapidly evolving trends & technologies.

Many people spend years, and worse, thousands of dollars trying to “figure it out” -- and then end up going out of business.

I’ve carefully curated a unique group of speakers to share their experience and deliver it to you in a format that is all about taking action. That way you can learn about technologies for growing, strategies for business, and a path towards building a mission driven organization.

#2 - Get A FREE Ticket!

Most conferences cost thousands of dollars, I want to give you this material free for 10 days so that you can learn about vertical farming from wherever you are in the world.

The free streaming period has now ended, but you can get lifetime access here for $97.

#3 – Actionable Interviews With Top Entrepreneurs, Investors, Educators, and Thought Leaders

This summit is all about helping you to learn and take action! Every summit talk is designed to help you apply actionable advice to help improve some aspect of your farm.

Meet Your Summit Host, Chris Powers.

Hey thanks for visiting the Summit Page,

My name is Chris Powers and I'm on a mission to grow and promote vertical farming and CEA technologies. 

I started this virtual summit because I believe that indoor agriculture has the potential to do a lot of good for this world. I've already seen so many farms fail because they didn't have their tech or business strategies down right. That's why I want to help YOU get involved or succeed in vertical farming wherever you are in the world. When I was first getting started two years ago, I would have killed for the chance to learn from so many experts all at once. My goal is to make this virtual summit as valuable to you as possible. I want to provide the highest quality resources for the entrepreneurs who are building the vertical farming & urban agriculture industries around the world.

If you haven't already, sign up below to get free access to the live summit and updates on new speakers, bonuses, and contests as they are announced.
