KINGSTON, NEW YORK, USA, September 20, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Amy Wu is an award-winning journalist and director of the documentary film “From Farms to Incubators” based on her book of the same title. Wu is a storyteller, community builder, agripreneur, and author of From Farms To Incubators. Amy Wu is communications manager for the Hudson Valley Farm Hub, which is funded by the NoVo Foundation.
On the GCSEN Wheaton ’16 -’21 Class Social Entrepreneurs’ Minimum Viable Minimum (MVP) Demonstration Day, Amy Wu shared her own journey to shine a light on Women in Agriculture (Agtech) through the United States as well as some of the challenges it has faced while highlighting their entrepreneurial histories. Wu had the opportunity to write a book telling the stories of minority women entrepreneurs from Agtech in Salinas Valley, California, and other parts of the country. His book, From Farms To Incubators, is a combination of storytelling and advocacy.
In From Farms To Incubators, Wu tells the stories of a group of innovative and hardworking women in the Agtech world.
