Next month is the final installment of the 2019 AGILE Innovation Series: Global Innovations in Protecting the World’s Food Supply. There is a food shortage, and the problem is growing.

Whether you are a global executive, university leader, entrepreneur, or government official, this issue will affect you.
The speakers below are on the front lines, using technology and innovation to confront this challenge head-on. Join us as we dive into the state of the world’s food supply, macro trends, the impact of climate change, key challenges of food security and inspiring innovations geared towards mitigating food scarcity on our planet.
