The 2018 Innovator Summit was jointly hosted by IIFH, together with the Energy Institute at Colorado State University (CSU), the UC Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources (UC ANR), and the Mixing Bowl.

The event focused on transformation of the food system along three distinct tracks: Energy, Biotechnology, and Digital. Keynote presentations, parallel breakout sessions, and innovator showcases provided the opportunity to further develop joint interests and collaborative efforts.

Guests from industry, research, technology, finance, government and non-profit sectors addressed common challenges and uncommon solutions across food, ag and health. Check back in soon for a summary of the event’s proceedings.
