Earlier this year, SREDA launched its Agriculture Technology HARVEST Program to attract budding ag-tech companies to Saskatoon. Now, just a few months later, SREDA is pleased to announce three companies are en route to Saskatoon next week. The companies all have innovative technologies and products that are ideal for Saskatchewan’s agriculture sector. The hope is they will see Saskatoon as the best place to expand their business.
During their visit, the companies will meet with key members of the Saskatchewan agriculture, science and innovation sectors as well as farmers and potential partners. They will also be attending Ag in Motion, Western Canada’s Outdoor Farm Expo.
SREDA President and CEO Alex Fallon said: “Over the last year, we have ramped up our business attraction efforts with the goal of attracting more international investment to Saskatoon. The fact that these three companies will be in Saskatoon on a business development mission shows our efforts are having success. We are looking forward to showcasing our vibrant city and fostering local connections and partnerships.”
SREDA will be hosting a Harvest Luncheon on July 19. SREDA members and Saskatoon business leaders are invited to join. To do so, simply drop Alex a line: firstname.lastname@example.org
It takes a city to welcome new companies.
