This Week in Vertical Farming

In case you missed it...

Thank you to everyone who has supported us as we close out another successful season of the Vertical Farming Podcast.

In case you missed it, Harry had the opportunity to speak with Eric Levesque - Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Cultivatd. Check out the episode here or wherever you get your podcasts.

Join Harry Duran, host of Vertical Farming Podcast, as he welcomes back to the show Eric Levesque, co-founder and Managing Partner at Cultivatd, an organization that works with some of the indoor farming industry's best product developers and technologies to help people discover which vertical farm tech is best for their projects. Since he was last on the show, Cultivatd has made some incredible strides, including raising $3.5 million in funds during the past year.

Today, Harry and Eric discuss the increasingly evolving vertical farming industry, what makes a great team and the process of educating larger, more entrenched corporations in the field of vertical farming. Eric expounds on how Cultivatd’s business model has changed in the past year and a half and their expansion efforts into the United States (USA), United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Australia. Finally, Eric speaks to what continues to drive and motivate him and speculates on new technologies that excite him about the future of vertical farming.

Support a Vertical Farming Pioneer

Farm.One is a vertical farm in New York City that has been delivering local grown greens using reuseable packaging since 2016. Farm.One's founder Robert Laing was also guest on the Vertical Farming Podcast back in Season 3. Recently, a few key investors in Farm.One's most recent round of funding pulled out, putting the company at risk of shutting down. In the words of Robert Laing, "This is the emergency parachute cord that I am pulling right now."

If you would like the opportunity to help Farm.One stay afloat and continue their journey to create a more sustainable future you can make a commitment to invest here.
