John Deere welcomes 4 new startups into its Startup Collaborator program.
The Startup Collaborator program in Deere’s Intelligent Solutions Group was launched last year to enhance and deepen collaborative relationships with startup companies whose technology could add value for John Deere customers.
“The first year of the John Deere Startup Collaborator program showed us and the startups involved the tremendous mutual value of working closely together,” said Julian Sanchez, director of strategy and business development at Deere’s Intelligent Solutions Group. “We‘re excited to continue building on the program’s success.”
The Startup Collaborator provides flexibility for Deere and startups to test innovative technologies with customers and dealers without a more formal business relationship. Startups also gain affiliation with and mentoring from a world-class leader in precision agriculture.
