The three-month programme will be hosted at Ireland's leading startup hub, Dogpatch Labs, and will conclude on the main stage at ONE: The Alltech Ideas Conference, where startups will have the unique opportunity to present to more than 4,000 attendees and some of the premier thought leaders in the world.
Last year's startups collectively added US$50 million in new qualified sales leads across 28 international markets by the end of the accelerator. Last month, seven of the 10 startups were featured by venture capital database company CB Insights in "Agtech: 100+ Technology Companies Changing The Farm."
"Alltech's roots are in entrepreneurial innovation, and as a global industry leader, we are well-positioned to open doors for the next generation of industry disruptors," said Dr. Lyons. "It is essential to empower the next generation of ag-tech entrepreneurs who are pioneering for a sustainable future."
