The second annual Food | Ag | Ideas Week is returning Oct 10-15, 2019 to Minneapolis and St. Paul. This six-day series of speakers, events, tours, and demo events led by Grow North and its partners is designed to drive connectivity across the sector and invite leaders to join Minnesota's entrepreneur and innovation ecosystem.

The Week brings together entrepreneurs, Fortune 500 business leaders, growers, innovators, investors, nonprofit and for-profit thought leaders, to share diverse perspectives and ideas across sustainable agriculture, food innovation and tech, and food and society.

Esca Bona will be hosting a keynote during the event. Stay tuned for more details!

An ethos we can get behind:
