Creating Agricultural OpportunitiesFremont County, Colorado
Modeled after FEDCs award winning TechSTART program, AgSTART creates profitable ventures at the intersection of ag-tech, traditional agriculture, and conservation initiatives that positively impact the region’s natural resources, workforce, supply chains, K-12 + educational environments and affordable accessible housing.
Agriculture is our wisest pursuit because it will, in the end, contribute most to real wealth, good morals and happiness.
