About Cumulus
The Cumulus Mission

Cumulus will gather the technology innovators and investment community from the agrifood ecosystem on the belief that humanity needs to pull countless small levers to meet the challenges of food access, security and sustainability. Cumulus offers a big tent for the entire agtech and foodtech value chain because progress can’t happen in a silo; the more nodes in a network, the more quickly ideas can be brought to market, scaled, and have much-needed impact.

The breadth of innovation you’ll find at Cumulus truly extends from seed and cell to food service and retail, and the circular economy solutions linking it all together. They include gene edited seeds and biologic inputs improving crop yield while decreasing fertilizer use, autonomous technologies tackling labor shortages on farm and in restaurants, the upcycling food waste into novel ingredients, regenerative agriculture methods to capture carbon, the production of delicious and affordable cultivated meats, and thousands of other creative advances in the pipeline.

The Cumulus community includes those who are inventing or investing in a wide range of agrifood technologies, including:

  • Precision agriculture and other on-farm technology
  • Controlled-environment agriculture
  • Sustainable aquaculture solutions
  • Novel foods and ingredients
  • Supply chain, visibility and traceability
  • Retail and eGrocery
  • Foodservice technology
  • Upcycling and reducing food waste
  • Water and carbon resource management

What to expect at Cumulus:

Attendees will have access to three days of content, including workshops, main stage discussions, breakout sessions, company pitches and sampling of novel foods. Networking will be facilitated using our proprietary 1:1 meeting platform, and serendipitous connections as we activate multiple venues throughout The Venetian Hotel & Resort. Plus, the parties will be epic, with a signature closing party featuring exciting entertainment (artist TBA!).

At Cumulus, we believe the innovators at the forefront of the agriculture and food industries—the agrifood value chain—are the most consequential business leaders in the world. Are you passionate about the future of food? If so, join your peers for this important community event.
