Racial Equity in the Food and Ag Ecosystem

Racial Equity in the Food and Ag Ecosystem

Grow North was proud to sign the pledge put forth by Forge North to take specific and meaningful action to build an inclusive startup community and advance racial equity across the Minneapolis – St. Paul region.  We are bringing this to life by shifting spending and partnership opportunities to BIPOC-owned companies, supporting, mentoring and highlighting work by the BIPOC community, and committing to have diverse and representative panels and speakers at all of our events.  If you are interested in partnering with us please connect with us!

Education and Connectivity Programming

Growing business that will drive change in our food system requires expertise on commercialization and scale. Our programs strive to 'democratize the accelerator' and give broader access to high quality, industry-specific education as well as drive interconnectivity across the food and agriculture sector.
