Anita Norian Judges 2023 InnoVenture Challenge

Nora Springs-based startup ReEnvision Ag was selected Wednesday evening by a panel of judges as the winner of the 2023 InnoVenture Challenge, a $100,000 pitch competition co-hosted by InnoVenture Iowa and BioConnect Iowa. ReEnvision Ag is creating a new category of planter for farmers called SeedSpike, which extends the planting window, reduces soil compaction and returns yield potential to farmers. Pictured above is ReEnvision Ag founder and CEO Jayson Ryner, right, accepting the prize with judges Matt Warrens, Anita Norian and Martina Bockenstedt. The other finalists were Classroom Clinic and Upcycling+, which was voted the Nyemaster Goode People Choice Award winner by the audience and received $10,000.
