AgLaunch365 is a nationally recognized agtech commercialization program focused on farm-centric innovation. AgLaunch365 helps entrepreneurs find success by providing agriculture expertise, incubator resources, and a strong global ag-specific network. Paired with the natural resources of Tennessee and the surrounding Mid-South region, AgLaunch365 has the power to help launch startups into successful businesses. The program consists of three phases of support that closely align with a typical agricultural production season. In Phase I, teams develop their business models and gain access to the Cultivator Mentor Network from October through December. Phase II participants begin in January and refine their product or technology to be “field ready” for on-farm trials with AgLaunch365’s Farmer Network beginning in the spring. Phase III teams work directly with growers in the region to test their innovation in the field during the growing seasons. AgLaunch365 partners with Innova Ag Innovation Fund IV, a $31 million licensed USDA venture fund backed by the Farm Credit banking system. AgLaunch365 is a program of AgLaunch, a joint initiative of Memphis Bioworks Foundation and Tennessee Department of Agriculture.
