Keynote Presentation

Watch our keynote fireside chat with David Friedberg the CEO of The Production Board

Davie Friedberg founded and served as the CEO of The Climate Corporation, the world’s first “ag tech” unicorn, which you sold in 2013 to Monsanto.  He then founded and served as CEO of The Production Board (“TPG”), a venture foundry that builds companies in food and ag, life sciences and software.

The night before Cascadia Connect FBA 2023 kicked off, Dave announced he was moving away from day-to-day responsibilities at TPB to become the full-time CEO and Chairman of Ohalo, a portfolio company that TPB founded with the CTO, Jud Ward.

Cascadia Managing Director Scott Porter was the first person to sit down with Dave in person following this announcement to his views on the industry and where we are going. The conversation did not disappoint!
