Managing the Transition from R&D to Commercialization

Successful transitions from R&D to commercialization require a dual focus on product development and financing.

The two are inextricably linked: While fueling the product pipeline with a breakthrough suite of products that solve real-world problems for agriculture, companies must maintain a robust outreach program to the investor community, which supplies the financial resources to fund and commercialize that product pipeline. Mr. Marvin will offer personal tips from his more than 30 years of experience as an entrepreneur and CEO who has successfully raised more than $350 million for technology companies. Mr. Chambers will discuss how ATP became one of the largest plant nutrient suppliers in Canada.
