GreenStone was pleased to host members of the ACRE AgTech team at our Grand Rapids branch on March 28 for a lunch and learn event. Paul Sachs, executive director, and Doug Huesdash, business development, presented on the organization’s purpose and who they can help.
ACRE connects entrepreneurs with the resources they need to succeed, furthering the cultivation of emerging technologies for today’s agricultural economy, and leveraging West Michigan’s legacy as one of the most productive agriculture regions in the United States.
GreenStone’s branch team learned more about the organization’s specialization in helping farmers, entrepreneurs and existing businesses commercialize, license, or sell their ag-technology inventions. The types of hands-on, customized business startup services provided include, but are not limited to: validating business concepts; assessing intellectual property; confirming product engineering; preparing business plans and financial pro forma documents; developing markets and distribution channels for products; helping to obtain business financing; and connecting clients with manufacturing and agri-business experts to assist with prototyping and product testing.
GreenStone is proud to partner with such an organization dedicated to advancing agriculture! To learn more, visit ACRE’s website at www.acreagtech.com.
