The Valley Ventures Accelerator is a program within the WET Center at Fresno State. The university’s strong focus on real-world agricultural issues gives ventures the opportunity to set up technology on the 1,000 acre farm as well as involvement with students, staff, and faculty. Throughout The Valley Ventures Accelerator program, companies will engage closely with industry leaders, investors, and fellow entrepreneurs in the agriculture, water, and energy-technology space. Through these relationships, we prepare companies to access investment opportunities, generate revenue, and establish a solid understanding of the industry.
