“Attending World-Agritech was an incredible opportunity for Switch Bioworks. We had over 100 leaders stop by our booth in the Start-up Arena and made many more serendipitous connections in the hallways and after our pitch on the main stage.

We left inspired and excited about our mission at Switch and how it fits into the bigger movement.” Founder & CEO, SWITCH BIOWORKS – 2023 Start-up Showcase
