What makes us unique?
Sales and Marketing
Our Valley Ventures Accelerator has successfully executed five cohorts since its inception in 2017.
Through our five cohorts, we have worked with a total of sixty businesses who have since graduated and entered their industries with a leg up in their business practice.
Funding is an integral part of the foundation of all of our ventures. We have helped our ventures successfully raise over $33M in total private and public funding.
The future is not only through the growth of water, energy and ag-tech solutions, but also through job creation. We have created a total of 247 jobs through our Valley Ventures accelerator program.
Dr. Farooq Anjum, Co-founder/CTO of GroGuru
After developing the initial GroGuru prototypes at the Fresno State Farm, it was great to focus on funding and product-market fit as part of the initial cohort of the Valley Ventures accelerator. The team at Valley Ventures also brought several large growers to talk to the cohort and GroGuru was able to convert some of these large growers into customers.
