1.1 billion people began this millennium hungry. This is the unsettling fact that started two brothers on a journey.
What began as a college thesis is emerging to be one of the most groundbreaking technologies to impact farming and global food production since the invention of the tractor. But that's not enough for our guest Sam Bertram, the co-founder of OnePointOne--a revolutionary vertical farming technology company. Sam and his brother John are on a mission to unleash the power of plants on human health. But health beyond nutrition. Using Robots, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and other tech, One Point One help plants reach their full potential in an indoor-growing environment.
Sam and John have raised $60 million so far, expanding from a demonstration farm in San Jose, California to establishing a foothold in Arizona to include an 80,000 sq ft building in Avondale.
