Greater Mankato Growth is excited to announce the Agricultural Business Summit to be held January 29 from 11 am – 4 pm at the Verizon Wireless Center in Mankato. The summit will convene key stakeholders within the agricultural business community in order to gather their thoughts and visions on how to become even more of a predominant agricultural business epicenter. Research compiled by Greater Mankato Growth on the current state of agricultural business will kick-off the event, followed by visioning and goal setting. Information gathered at the event will be compiled and used to facilitate the identification of future investments that will grow our agricultural epicenter.
