The EDGE Investment Forum is a unique platform that brings together smart entrepreneurs and keen investors. Now in its third year, the EDGE has joined forces with AgSmart for 2020.

The EDGE Investment Forum provides the opportunity for companies to present to Private Equity Funders, Venture Capitalists, Angel groups and independent investors to take their business to the next level.

The EDGE at AgSmart creates a network of investment in agriculture. This is the event to pitch your business for investment and ‘discover-connect-cultivate’ business relationships.
