2020 Virtual Agenda

Enjoy Cutting-Edge Content and Time to Connect

While we are disappointed that we are unable to hold the second annual Regenerative Food Systems Investment Forum as an in-person event, we are excited to still have the opportunity to connect in September virtually. We have created a robust, informative and interactive online agenda designed to bring leading stakeholders in sustainable and regenerative agriculture and food investment together (virtually) to move this investment opportunity forward!

Each day we have several opportunities for you to learn, ask questions, discuss ideas and meet new stakeholders working in the space… and if you can’t make something, don’t worry we’ll make the recording available for all attendees.
