Wednesday Oct 16th:  Clean Tech in the Ag Sector

 

AgTech is a hot topic these days, with a growing awareness of the incredible opportunity that exists for technology to improve the efficiency and reduce the environmental impact of one of Alberta’s key industries.

 

 

Please join us on Oct 16th for an expert panel and open discussion about clean tech in the agriculture sector.  The panelists will discuss industry trends, share tips about new funding & programs, challenges to watch out for, and provide examples of technology ventures that are succeeding in the space.

 

Panel Speakers:  

Jason Bradley - Director Smart Ag, Olds College

Jason’s technology background stems from his first career role at Nortel Networks in varied senior manufacturing and project management positions within New Product Introduction, Consumer Products and Wireless divisions. Taking a bit of a career turn, he moved his family to the eastern slopes of the Canadian Rockies and spent 19 years as Ranch Manager and Vice-President Operations at the Bar 75/Red Deer River Ranches, a 50,000 acre cattle ranch in the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. A yearning for learning took him to Olds College as contract instructor in livestock management. Recently his focus has been leading the design and development of the college’s Smart Ag Ecosystem including the officially launched Olds College Smart Farm, a demonstration farm and cutting edge learning environment for students and life-long learners and a living lab for the applied research capabilities of Olds College Centre for Innovation.

 

 Sasha Musij - Director, Agribusiness Market Development at ATB

A passion for pioneering growth in Alberta and Canada’s constantly evolving agribusiness landscape plays a key role in Sasha’s approach to his position at ATB. Sasha looks to support innovation by addressing access to capital issues for the full agribusiness value chain (pre-farm to fork). As a part of ATB’s Agriculture Centre of Expertise (ACE), his support extends to being a thought leader, connecter, catalyst and lender to the agribusiness ecosystem. As a key player within Alberta’s growing AgTech sector, Sasha is a member of: 

  • Olds College - Smart Agriculture Industry Advisory Committee
  • Calgary Economic Development - Agribusiness Advisory Committee
  • Plant Protein Alliance Alberta (PPAA) - Finance Committee
  • Alberta/Calgary Agri-food Innovation Hub - Steering Committee
