We invite you to attend the Agricultural Utilization Research Institute's 4th Annual New Uses Forum.

In partnership with Compeer Financial and Georgetown University's Rural Opportunity Initiative, this conference is dedicated to exploring the intersection of sustainability, innovation and investment in food and agriculture.

Join us in person or virtually as we convene some of the most knowledgeable voices on topics related to new uses innovation, including development, investment and support. The Forum will also include panel discussions on finance and investment capital, digital strategies, sustainable proteins, the next wave of renewables, Minnesota food and ag ecosystem supporters and spotlight entrepreneurs.

Previous attendees included representatives from private industry, not-for-profits, commodity groups, economic developers, producers, financers, state agencies, academia and others. In 2019, we hosted more than 400 participants from 17 states.

We hope to see you there!
