The Pearse Lyons Accelerator
In 2016, The Pearse Lyons Accelerator was initiated to draw on the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation on which Alltech was founded. For three years, The Pearse Lyons Accelerator proved to be a successful launchpad for new technologies. The late-stage startup program provided valuable guidance for young ag-tech companies to find success and offered a window into the future of agriculture. As we look ahead to the next era of innovation and collaboration through The Pearse Lyons Cultivator, we invite you to explore the success that was achieved through the accelerator.
