About this Event

Agriculture today is high tech with an array of AI-sensors, drones and robotics already deployed in the fields. To better understand the investments and entrepreneurial opportunities of the emerging AgriTech space join us in a discussion with Charlie Anderson, CEO, Augean Robotics, and Oliver Mitchell, Venture Partner, FF Ventures Capital.

-----------------------------

*Charlie Anderson, CEO, Augean Robotics - Charlie grew up on a 191 acre working fruit, vegetable, and livestock farm. This experience lead him to believe that all tedious farm labor should be automated, and simultaneously to understand the many challenges that robots face in agriculture. He founded Augean Robotics after gaining experience with Case New Holland, John Deere's largest competitor, where he reported to the head of the North American operating unit and worked on special projects across sales, marketing, manufacturing, and distribution. He received a BA from Amherst College, and an MBA from Harvard Business School.

*Oliver Mitchell , Venture Partner, ff Venture Capital - Oliver joined ff Venture Capital in 2018 as a Venture Partner. Previously, he was the founding partner of Autonomy Ventures, a firm focused on early stage investments in business and industrial automation technologies, including: robotics, smart mobility, remote sensing and machine intelligence. Oliver’s portfolio has returned over six exits in the past five years with two IPOs and one unicorn. Oliver’s career in private equity spans over twenty years, with a track record that includes: selling Holmes Protection to ADT; Americash to American Express; and launching RobotGalaxy, a national robot STEM brand. He is a mentor of New York University’s Endless Frontier Labs and sits on the New York State Assembly AI Commission. Oliver holds 14 patents, frequently speaks at international trade shows, and writes syndicated articles that reaches thousands of readers.
