The Yield Lab Ireland evaluates companies from all around the world and recently welcomed it’s first 4 portfolio companies in Galway in May, 2017.
The Yield Lab Ireland programming is 6-months long with formal programming in Ireland for two days every month from May through October, including AgFest by The Yield Lab in St. Louis, MO. During this time, companies will be guided through a uniquely developed accelerator program designed to combine the existing technology entrepreneurial ecosystem and strong agricultural industry. Each company will be assigned a dedicated Yield Lab Managing Director to guide them through these 6 months and beyond.
