The University of Regina has joined a partnership to deliver the Agtech Accelerator program, which seeks solutions for global agricultural challenges. The Accelerator is a venture-capital-backed accelerator for early-stage Canadian agtech start-ups. Students will have the opportunity to participate in experiential learning through the Accelerator. “We are excited to be able to leverage the University of Regina’s outstanding research infrastructure and expertise in our new partnership,” said Dr Chris Yost, AVP Research at URegina. “We are ready to help Agtech Accelerator clients meet the challenges they face and to help build a world-class agtech industry hub in Saskatchewan.” The accelerator program is operated by a partnership between the university, Economic Development Regina (EDR), Cultivator powered by Conexus, and Emmertech.
