Before the reception and panel, you are invited to attend the Fourth Annual CUBE Innovators Competition from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

About the Panel Discussion
The Center for Urban Business Entrepreneurship (CUBE) will host a panel and networking event to discuss the growth of the urban agriculture industry in the Brooklyn and greater New York City communities. Joined by the Office of the Brooklyn Borough President and members of the New York City Council, the panel will feature industry leaders and policy experts who will explore the technology and market forces driving innovation in urban agriculture, and chart a legislative path forward to expand existing policy, foster the creation of food growth opportunities in local communities, and nurture thriving new businesses.

Discussion topics will include the role played by attorneys in providing guidance to stakeholders in this pioneering market and the ways in which city officials and policymakers are addressing the economic and nutritional needs of local communities. The discussion will be bookended by CUBE Fellow Tatiana Pawlowski's ’17 presentation of her white paper “From Food Desserts to Just Deserts: Expanding Urban Agriculture In New York City Through Sustainable Policy.” Please join this conversation about the future of how urbanites will grow and source their food.

Moderated by John Rudikoff, CEO and Managing Director, CUBE

Sponsored by CUBE, Office of the Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams and Rafael L. Espinal Jr., Council Member for the 37th District
