A Tauranga business leader helping Kiwi technology entrepreneurs break into Silicon Valley is the guest speaker at a free event next month.

The event will be hosted by the University of Waikato's Management School in Hamilton on Tuesday, April 5.

The talk, 'The future of ag-tech with Peter Wren-Hilton', is open to alumni and members of the public. Numbers are limited, so register online at http://bit.ly/ceealumnievent.

Wren-Hilton is the founder of The Meteoroid Program, an accelerator programme that helps Kiwi start-up ag-tech companies to connect with entrepreneur and investor networks in Silicon Valley, and get them ready to launch on the global market.

Wren-Hilton says emerging new digital technologies - such as robotics, drones, sensors, digitalisation and big data - are having a significant impact on agri-business opportunities, and will enable Kiwi companies to become even more profitable, productive and sustainable on a global scale.
