We Made It... Radicle Challenge Finalists 2020!
Updated: Mar 30
We are excited and humbled to be selected as finalists in the #RadicleChallenge amongst such an amazing group of finalists.
Our company was founded with the vision of solving critical human health and agricultural challenges with innovation that would be both scaleable and accessible to those who need it. In the last 5 years, we've grown as a team, learning along the way from our customers, peers and industry specialists.
We have a long way to go to achieve our founder's dream, but it's great to be recognized and shortlisted amongst the five outstanding finalists from almost 200 entrants in the Radicle Challenge. The Challenge winner receives a $250k investment prize and will be invited to present on stage as part of the Summit’s acclaimed start-up technology showcase, a huge incentive for all the finalists. Beyond that, the winner also has priceless access to Radicle’s company-building platform, and the opportunity to engage with Corteva’s technology leaders and agriscience team.
We appreciate all the support from our customers, partners, family and friends. A special thanks to Radicle Growth and Corteva Agriscience for putting together the Challenge and selecting Scanit as one of the finalists.
We will be pitching our technology to a panel of judges at the World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit in San Francisco on March 17th-18th. Wish us luck and we hope to see you there.
