Lunch & Keynote Speaker: Carter Malloy
Keynote speaker Carter Malloy focuses on the future with innovative investment platform and approach
SSTI and the Arkansas Research Alliance are pleased to welcome Carter Malloy, founder and CEO of AcreTrader, as the keynote speaker for the 2022 Annual Conference. AcreTrader addresses the high cost of entry and the burden of farm management that keeps farmland inaccessible to the average investor. At the same time, it provides an opportunity to provide farmers with innovative routes to capital for expansion.
In other words, Carter Malloy is applying his experience in finance, tech and agriculture to focus on the future — helping make the oldest industry there is more innovative.
Malloy and AcreTrader have been featured in stories in Barron’s, the New York Times and Business Insider. AcreTrader is backed by industry-leading venture capital investors, including RZC Investments, Jump Capital, Narya Capital, Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Seed Fund, and Revel Partners.
Carter Malloy grew up in an Arkansas farming family and has had a lifelong passion for investing, agriculture, and conservation. Prior to founding AcreTrader, he was part of an equity investment firm and a Managing Director with Stephens, Inc., a large private investment bank.
Carter will be interviewed by Roby Brock, CEO of Talk Business & Politics, a 23-year old multi-media news organization reporting on business and politics in Arkansas.
