Emerging Company Presentations



Kansas City is home to the Animal Health Corridor. Because of its significant animal health industry concentration, the Corridor offers a uniquely supportive environment for early-stage entrepreneurs in the animal health and nutrition industry. 

In 2021, twelve early-stage companies will present their innovations, with entries such as technology that improves animal welfare and access to care, products that prevent and treat disease in pets and livestock, and systems that protect data and investments. Since the inception of the event, emerging companies have raised almost $467 million, with several receiving licensing agreements or distribution contracts.

The Animal Health Summit provides a unique opportunity for venture capital funds, investment firms and animal health companies to hear from emerging companies with the newest technology.
