The Grow-NY Food & Agriculture Competition is back for it's fourth year in New York State. The annual event brings innovators in food and agriculture from around the globe together to find ways to better our region's rapidly changing ecosystem.
Funded by Empire State Development through the Upstate Revitalization Initiative, the competition is administered by Cornell's Center for Regional Economic Advancement.

This year, a total of $3-million is up for grabs. Finalists will each get to pitch their business ideas in person, with a shot to win up to $1-million in funding for themselves. All winners are required to create a plan to grow jobs, connect with local partners, and make a strong contribution to the economy in Upstate New York.
