“For us, participating in the first edition of the Pomona AgTech Accelerator was a unique experience. It is a program that show it's value since the selection of the participants, we managed to achieve a very special synergy between mentors, investors and entrepreneurs; everyone interested in generating a social and environmental well being with our ventures.
In each workshop we obtained feedback and consulting at the highest level from the facilitators and mentors, managing to catalyze an imminent growth in our venture at the short term. We received good guiding and mentorship to realize the market validations of our technology and feedback from the other participating ventures to be able to create a successful business model with an expansion strategy towards Central America.
We had the opportunity to present our project to investors and see the potential that we have, as a company and as professionals. I can say that this Accelerator is of utmost importance to be able to grow towards a more sustainable agriculture in the region, in which we unite strengths to make our countries move forward and be able to replenish our environment."
