"The first year of the John Deere Startup Collaborator program showed us and the startups involved the tremendous mutual value of working closely together," said Julian Sanchez, director of strategy and business development at Deere's Intelligent Solutions Group. "We're excited to continue building on the program's success."
Deere is pleased to welcome into the Startup Collaborator four leading startups working to transform agriculture:

The Startup Collaborator provides flexibility for Deere and startups to test innovative technologies with customers and dealers without a more formal business relationship. Startups also gain affiliation with and mentoring from a world-class leader in precision agriculture.
