‘Tesla For Tractors’ Startup ATC Is The 2017 MN Cup Runner Up



Autonomous Tractor Corporation (ATC) Co-Founder, President and CEO Kraig Schulz delivers the final pitch to judges earlier today.

The venture, which moved from Fargo, North Dakota to St. Michael, Minnesota, aims to help farmers increase their ROIs using “eDrive” – a system that replaces traditional hydraulic engines with a diesel-electric self-driving system.

“We have pre-sold all of our 2017 production capacity,” Schulz says.   The company received $30k coming into the finals and picked up another $20k of no-strings-attached money as this years runner up.
