“The ag industry is on the cusp of a complete transformation. However, far too many growers struggle to manage the risk associated with all of the new tools and technologies that are being offered to them or gain access to the capital needed to deploy those tools on farm,” said Cosgrove.

Fintech solutions for farmers

“While fintech solutions are found in nearly every other industry, agriculture has lagged behind to date. I look forward to leading this company into its next phase of growth to help build more sustainable, productive and profitable farms with Growers Edge products and services backed by novel fintech solutions.”

As CEO, Cosgrove will also become a member of the Growers Edge Board of Directors, alongside Young and leaders from investor directors from Finistere Ventures and Seed2Growth Ventures.
