AquaYield named to StartupGrind’s 2018 Global Startup Exhibition
Feb. 8, 2018
The placement puts AquaYield in an elite group of companies and CEO Clark Bell recognizes the unique privileges of being named. “Our selection to this list from 7,000 other startups speaks volumes to the unique offering we bring to farmers on a global level in our ongoing focus and goal to help them all become more sustainable and profitable.”
“We started this program after seeing many of the Accelerators and Incubators not doing much to really help companies,” says Derek Andersen, founder & CEO of Startup Grind. “We really wanted to make an actual difference in the startups trajectory and leverage all of our resources and network to their advantage.”
Startup Exhibition companies are given access to our global audience through media, and onsite at the annual Global Event held February 12 through February 14 in Redwood City, CA. The exhibition helps companies to accelerate their pace towards growth and success by gaining the visibility of mentors and investors inside the network.
“These startups have great teams, traction, technology and massive markets,” says Andersen. “Our biggest goal is for each startup to go back home with a new and improved game plan that would not have happened without the exposure of the exhibition and the mentors/resources that were gained through our network.”
