The Reverse Pitch Comes to Minnesota: 
Ag and Food Leaders Seek Fresh Ideas from Entrepreneurs and Researchers

On March 27, some of the world's largest and most influential food and agricultural companies will gather to present "reverse pitches" to an audience of researchers, entrepreneurs, innovators and subject-matter experts. The businesses will talk about distinctive industry challenges and invite the audience to propose solutions. 
The Reverse Pitch Showcase and networking event will be March 27 at the Marriott West in Minneapolis and is free and open to the public. A registration link and additional information is available at Those who cannot attend will be able to watch on a live web stream broadcast.
This Reverse Pitch Showcase is part of the larger New Uses Forum, hosted by AURI, Compeer Financial and the Georgetown University's Rural Opportunity Initiative. The New Uses Forum is a two-day event (March 27-28) dedicated to accelerating ag innovation and investment, which will bring together some of the most knowledgeable voices on topics related to investment opportunities to entrepreneurial startup experiences.  It is intended to help connect innovators to resources via a wide range of panel discussions, breakout sessions and keynote addresses.
