A self-described “big city person” from Westchester County, New York, Amy Wu arrived in Salinas, Calif., to cover agriculture as a reporter for the Salinas Californian in 2015. Inspired by the women who were slowly but surely adding their technological savvy to the deeply male, $9 billion industry, Wu made the documentary From Farms to Incubators: Telling the Stories of Minority Women Entrepreneurs in the Salinas Valley and Beyond. Since then, Wu has become a fierce advocate for women in this space, chronicling their lives in film and photography, holding networking events and penning the upcoming book From Farms to Incubators: Telling the Stories of Women Innovators in Agtech (Linden Publishing, early 2021). “These women are hoping to make a difference,” Wu says. “They have the talent, creativity and innovation to create solutions for farmers and solve problems like food waste and labor shortages. They’re also relentless as entrepreneurs.”
