Because of that, they went all the way to California, in acceptance of an invitation to attend THRIVE Top 50 – an innovation forum which brought together entrepreneurs, investors, technology companies, researchers, farmers, and big corporations of the ag sector.

It is promoted by SVG Partners, a group of investors in technology which also provides consulting. They team up with other giants in the industry to put together programs focused on strategy, innovation and global expansion.
Strider was the only brazilian company listed in the ‘Cloud-based Services/SaaS”, which includes tools that capture and store operational data through the cloud computing system, allowing the farmer to access the information anywhere from his computer, and remotely monitor their production.
The forum discussed the global challenges faced by agriculture and food industry, apart from stimulating, through acceleration programs, the development and adoption of sustainable technologies which will be necessary to meet the world’s future demands for food.
According to SVG Partners founder and CEO, John Hartnett, the awarded companies promote improvements in the generation of new solutions and lead the industry to adopt better bases for environmental management, culture resilience and many other benefits to the agricultural universe. Moreover, he states that they represent a powerful opportunity for the sector to produce our food sustainably, efficiently and safely.
