On April 5, the City hosted a delegation from the Silicon Valley Forum to come and learn about Salinas’ role in the AgTech industry.  The group included more than 100 attendees from 17 different countries, including startups, investors, and government officials.  Economic Development Manager Andrew Myrick sat on a panel discussing the development of the AgTech Ecosystem in Salinas from the perspective of government, education, financiers, startup businesses, and established businesses.  After the panel discussions, the group visited the Hartnell Center for Advanced Technology in East Salinas.  This was the second time this group made their annual visit to Salinas.
