The Summit

Three Days of Talks & Panels

The Virtual Summit on AgTech is an entirely online conference focused on expanding access to trends and issues in agriculture and technology. We aim to bring together some of the most important people, organizations, and ideas pushing this space forward in order to accelerate the spread of knowledge, create new connections, and generate ideas. This is our inaugural year, and we will be covering a wide range of cutting-edge topics with an impressive line-up of speakers. 


In contrast to other conferences and gatherings, we are squarely focused on reducing barriers to access with simple, low-cost registration and the ability to engage from anywhere in the world. Registration requires a small contribution ($5 minimum) that will be donated to one of our non-profit partners. Our innovative platform for streaming - Crowdcast - will create an interactive environment where attendees can pose questions, vote on their favorites, and chat with each other.



We would like to thank all of our speakers, panelists, supporters, sponsors, and attendees for making 2019 VSAT a wonderful success! Stay tuned for announcements about 2020. In the meantime, you can rewatch any of the panels and talks on Crowdcast or YouTube (for FREE). Go to the "2019 Recap" page for more info.


Who is hosting VSAT and why?

The Virtual Summit on AgTech is hosted by the Center for Private Equity and Venture Capital (CPEVC) at the Tuck School of Business. The Center's mission is to inspire the next generation of private equity  investors and venture capitalists through experiential engagement and academic excellence. Center Fellows and Tuck Food & Ag Club Directors, Rachel Baras and Matt Baer, conceived of the idea for a virtual conference focused on agriculture and technology as a way to facilitate meaningful conversations focused on topics that are critically relevant to students and future leaders interested in or curious about the field. VSAT is intended to become an annual gathering hosted by CPEVC and Tuck.
