AMES, Iowa, February 16, 2021 – Ag Startup Engine (ASE), at the Iowa State University (ISU) Research Park, announced that it is welcoming Golden Grade Sponsor, Davis Brown Law Firm, soon to be Dentons Davis Brown, an Iowa law firm providing comprehensive legal services to clients ranging from private individuals to Fortune 500 corporations, as well as multinational corporations, emerging companies and start-ups, not-for-profit organizations, agribusinesses, and regulated industries.
The Ag Startup Engine effort was launched four years ago to help address two fundamental gaps that prevent agricultural startups and entrepreneurs from being more successful in Iowa: early, seed-stage investment and organized mentorship from renowned Iowan and Midwestern entrepreneurs.
“We are excited to support and get move involved with the Ag Startup Engine,” said Davis Brown lawyer, Jason Stone, “We regularly support and work with founders as they grow their company and help investors as they look for their next opportunity. This sponsorship is a good fit.”
“Davis Brown has helped the ASE program and fund since its inception,” said Joel Harris, Executive Director of ASE. “We are excited to formalize our relationship going forward to bring value to our startup founders, investors, and stakeholders.”
Other sponsor levels are available including Silver Planter and Platinum Harvester. Ag Startup Engine is actively looking for agriculture startups to finance and accept into their program.
