In May, machine vision technology developer Prospera Technologies announced it had been acquired by Valmont, a global leader in designing and manufacturing products and services for infrastructure development and agricultural productivity. For Prospera Co-Founder and CEO Daniel Koppel, the $300 million acquisition marked a major milestone in a journey that started with the dream of revolutionizing the agriculture industry.
“I got into agriculture by accident,” says Koppel. “I come from a tech background, but I found this big gap in the agriculture industry and said let’s go build something to change the world.”
On March 16, 2022 Koppel will share his story at a Founders Network keynote presentation. As part of the event he’ll detail what makes Prospera’s startup journey unique, the company’s go-to-market strategy, and how the lessons he’s learned can benefit other startup founders.
In his keynote presentation Koppel will cover:
