The Yield Lab LATAM 2018 program will meet 6 times a year over the course of the 2018 calendar year, starting in late April. Programming sessions will run for two or three days and will take place in Buenos Aires, Argentina. During this time, companies will be guided through a uniquely developed accelerator program designed to leverage the agriculture assets unique to Latin America. The accelerator fund will invest up to $100,000 into early stage technology companies that sustainably revolutionize agrifood systems globally.

The Yield Lab LATAM programming places an emphasis on providing access to customers, collaborators, and capital. Each company will be assigned a dedicated Yield Lab Managing Partner to guide them through the course of programming and beyond.
