Focus on Funding

One of our first Pollinators, way back in January 2014, was a “Focus on Funding”, where members of the farming, tech development and research community came together to hear about local, regional and national funding available in the public and private sector, for R&D, innovation and business growth. Two year later, the way entrepreneurs can choose to fund projects has changed, and new models such as crowd-funding have become more common-place to make ideas a reality. We’ll be hearing from experts about the public and private funding community and how you can access it – any strings that are attached, and how quickly you can expect to be able to spend the money.
