"Through The Pearse Lyons Accelerator, we carry on my father"s legacy, his entrepreneurial spirit and his desire to empower the next generation of entrepreneurs to contribute to a planet of plenty," said Dr Mark Lyons, President and CEO of Alltech.
The participants, which hail from Canada, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States, will also have the opportunity to present on the mainstage at ONE: The Alltech Ideas Conference. Now in its 35th year, the annual international conference will be held in Lexington, Kentucky, USA, from May 19–21 and will welcome more than 4,000 agriculture industry leaders from over 70 countries.
The participants represent a wide variety of transformative agricultural innovations.
