Women in AgTech Panel: International Women's Day on Monday March, 7 from 12:00-1:00 PM.

<<VIRTUAL EVENT ONLY >>

In honor of International Women’s Day (which is March 8) and Champaign-Urbana AgTech Week, we will present a virtual panel discussion featuring women who have played a significant role in the AgTech startup world. We will discuss the challenges and opportunities for women in AgTech startups, with an eye toward making the ecosystem more accessible to all. 

Panelists: Samantha Malach, Illinois AgTech Accelerator; Prof. Angela Green-Miller, Founder and President, TellTail Ag; Dr. Daphne Preuss, Entrepreneur 

This panel is a continuation of a conversation that started in 2021, when the Research Park hosted Amy Wu as a speaker for this event. Wu is a journalist who has focused her career on women in agtech startups, writing a book and producing a documentary. Here is a recap video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0NLuNtXikgo  This 2022 event will continue the conversation with women in the Champaign-Urbana agtech ecosystem.
