We Won: AVCC Agriculture Innovation Accelerator Award

Posted on by Michael Caplan

We are very excited to announce that HarvestHand was chosen as the winner of the first annual Agriculture Innovation Accelerator Award.  The Annapolis Valley Chamber of Commerce created the award as a way to recognize and support the innovative spirit of the agriculture and agri-food sector in the Valley,

Even though the HarvestHand CSA software product has been under development for the past four year, this happened to be our first major undertaking as a new partnership - Duncan, Patricia and Michael.  The award helped us gel our vision for the company, and really solidified us as a work group. Winning is huge for us, but the process was incredibly valuable too.

Practically speaking, the package offered by this award offers tremendous resources to help us in the early phase of our business.  Incorporation, maturing our business plan, accessing support on business development in general, and capital to allow us to hire our first employee are all items that this award will help us achieve in short order.  We have big hopes to go after the Atlantic Canadian and Eastern USA CSA markets this year -- hopes that are that much more realistic with the resources offered by this award.

This is also a wonderful community event.  Even though we can't speak for the other participants, it really felt like we and the other applicants were hitting a significant milestone in the evolution of our various products and businesses by participating in, and being recognized by, this award.
