UPSTARTS presented by Masterfeeds – The bold brash and daring future leaders of agriculture. This is for the early adopters and those who are trying something completely new. Young people who aren’t afraid to buck tradition, find their voice and go for the moon in Canadian ag!


MENTORS presented by Young’s Equipment– Been there, done that and have the lessons to prove it. Canadian agriculture wouldn’t be where it is without the people here and the leadership they continue to bring. From the kitchen table to the boardroom table, the Mentors always keep us pointed in the right direction.


INNOVATORS presented by CN – Build a better mousetrap? How about building an entire industry for the future. Whether they’re spinning wrenches or spinning atoms, it’s the Innovators who are keeping Canadian agriculture at the leading edge. Technology, processes, policies, business models, chemistry and genetics are just a few of the fields you’ll find this group owning.


DEAL MAKERS presented by Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers – Canadian agriculture is big business here at home and around the world. But who are the movers and shakers keeping the industry growing on Bay Street and Main Street? These are C-Suite leaders in their own right and are making sure agriculture is always at the right table when it’s time to do the deal.


DESIGNATED HITTERS presented by Viterra– The “go-to” leaders when you really need a home run. Industry champions, advisers, motivators, and producers that know how to get the job done and drive in some runs.
