Global AgInvesting featured in AgriMarketing issue (2.17.2015)

DANVERS, Mass., (2/17/15) -- Commentary from Kate Westfall, senior director of content & AgTech Initiatives, was included in the January/February issue of AgriMarketing. Westfall spoke of the history of Global AgInvesting as a sidebar to the article "Ag Inventors, Investors Meet," by AgriMarketing editors.

Read the entire article here, or see the text below written by Westfall:

HighQuest Partners, a strategic advisory firm serving the food and agribusiness industries, started producing the Global AgInvesting (GAI) conference series following the 2009 financial collapse.

Institutional investors were considering real assets, with a particular interest in global farmland, as part of their portfolio of investments.

GAI has expanded the focus beyond farmland at our four core conferences in New York, London, Singapore and Dubai to include a broad overview of the agriculture investment landscape, such as infrastructure and logistics, dairy, livestock, aquaculture, high-value crops, and an increasingly robust conversation on opportunities in innovation.

We will be holding the inaugural GAI AgTech Week in San Francisco, CA, June 22-24. It will provide two and a half days of presentations and interactive workshops. The program will cover topics such as the pathway to public markets, M&A success stories, addressing social consciousness/consumer perception, and will showcase tech firms who are addressing key challenges such as food waste and the California drought.
