UAV-IQ was invited to tell its story Startupfest 2019, one of Montreal’s world-renowned summer festivals. It was great to see other agriculture-focused startups doing great things and earning recognition at an event focused on celebrating and fostering entrepreneurship. It was an honor for us to be named a champion of the event’s Startup World Championships 2019, a competition that attracts companies from around the world.
It was terrific learning with, and from, a talented group of entrepreneurs and investors – we’re looking forward to continuing the conversations we started there. It’s not standard for us to write about attending a conference, but we had such a great experience in Montreal that we want everyone to know about it and put it on their radar for next year. Thank you for providing a stage to share our mission of using technology to help growers and bring agriculture into a more profitable and sustainable age.
