Global Ag Investing Speaks with Adrian Percy
In a recent sit-down, Michelle Pelletier Marshall discusses a wide range of topics of Finistere CTO Adrian Percy. From the article:
I am thrilled to be moving into this new role for many reasons. In my opinion, this is a “golden age” for agricultural technology, and I want to be working at the cutting edge of the innovations that will propel us forward. It has become increasingly clear that some of the more disruptive technologies will emerge outside of the walls of the agribusiness giants due to the surge in capital and technology tailwinds. In turn, the big players are embracing an “open innovation” concept and are happy to see these technologies being de-risked externally in a way that the pharmaceutical industry has done for a while. That trend, combined with new market entrants and business models within the sector, makes for lots of different exit opportunities. The venture space is a very dynamic and exciting space to be in ag!
