Carter Malloy presents to agricultural investors and industry leaders about the new way to invest in farmland.
MEMPHIS, TENN. (May 15, 2019) — Founder and CEO of AcreTrader, Carter Malloy, was one of sixteen people invited to speak during the Innovation Showcase on Wednesday, May 15 at Davos on the Delta in downtown Memphis.
The Innovation Showcase provides an additional venue at the conference for the leading thinkers in food system innovation to share their technologies, opportunities, and growth challenges with the people who can help drive their work forward. Malloy took the stage at the Peabody Hotel to address entrepreneurs, investors, and industry leaders who had gathered in attendance.
“We are excited for this opportunity to share the ways AcreTrader has been working to democratize farmland ownership,” Malloy said. “Farmland as an asset class has many unique benefits that investors find very attractive, and that is something we want to make available to as many people as possible.”
In 2018 Davos on the Delta brought together 33 startups representing a total of $1.1 billion raised. 18 major ag investors attended in 2018, representing 519 total active portfolio companies and at least $2.2 billion in assets under management. The 2019 conference is expected to produce even greater results.
