UC Berkeley, in collaboration with Solidaridad North America, has designed a comprehensive two-day workshop to provide the tools for upcoming leaders of the agrifood sector to address the challenges of the future. This year, we will emphasize the combination of finance and technology to enhance profitability and sustainability, broadly defined. This is a collaborative workshop, where participants, practitioners and leaders of the agrifood sector, will interact with leading thinkers and specialists from the private sector, civil society, and government. In previous years, speakers have included executives from MARS, Bungee, Rabobank, Costco, and Bank of America, as well as other innovators and trailblazers from California and around the world (see 1, 2, and 3). This year’s agenda will enhance this tradition.
