Vermont tech businesses are innovating in a range of sectors of our economy. The Vermont Technology Alliance is presenting “Let’s Tech Together” networking and information sessions to highlight the unique Vermont-based businesses and organizations that are driving tech innovation (and job opportunities) in all areas of the economy, both inside and outside the state – including AgTech, EnergyTech, HealthTech and more.
This session is an opportunity to hear an informal panel of leaders from Vermont businesses that are innovating in the use of agriculture technology, while also enjoying pizza and beer and networking with others in the Tech and AgTech communities. Come learn how businesses are applying technology to transform Vermont’s agriculture and food business sectors.
The panel will include
- Jake Isham, CEO of Ceres Greens, a vertical farming company focused on supplying customers with fresh local produce, year round.
- Rob Rock, owner of UpstreamAg, which designs and manufactures unique tools for small vegetable farms.
- Steve Swanson, co-owner and “cricket whisperer” from Flourish Farm, a full-scale cricket farm in Vermont, raising and harvesting crickets for human and pet consumption.
The “Let’s Tech Together” session will include complimentary pizza from Leonardo’s Pizza and all attendees will receive a drink ticket.
