Other partners and sponsors include Prince Albert II of Monaco’s Foundation, Covington & Burling, Cisco EIR, Cision, Cranfield University, Deloitte, Hobbs & Towne, the Monaco Economic Board, Parkview and the Social Stock Exchange.

Benson Hill Biosystems has been identified by an expert panel as one of the world’s most innovative sustainable technology companies and has been selected to present to senior financial and strategic cleantech investors, policy makers, legislators, end users and media.

Benson Hill Biosystems unlocks the global genetic potential of plants to enhance the sustainability of food, fiber and fuel production. It’s computational platform CropOS™ leverages recent advances in cloud biology, an intersection of disciplines including cloud computing, big data analytics, and plant biology to empower any company of any size to improve the genetics of any crop for a fraction of the time and cost traditionally required. CropOS is a cognitive engine that uses machine learning to continuously advance, enabling researchers to better predict which seeds will produce a desired trait — such as higher yield or environmental sustainability — across the spectrum of tools from breeding to genome editing to transgenics.

“Given the universal importance of agriculture in our society, we are excited to participate at CleanEquity Monaco to highlight a new era of innovation that can accelerate the development of sustainable, low-cost bioenergy feedstocks and other crops,” said Benson Hill CEO and Co-Founder Matthew Crisp. “Through a convergence of disciplines, a new generation of plant science can help meet our global food and energy goals while creating new market opportunities and private sector growth.”

During a period of unprecedented consolidation in the agriculture industry, Benson Hill is democratizing innovation to empower a more robust community of seed, energy and food companies to meet societal and environmental needs.
