My startup is being incubated in a government owned incubator, called the Innovation Hub.
I am in the process of gaining manufacturing space. where we can construct a set of beta food computers.
Progress has been slow, but we have done some work on high performance horticultural LED systems. The beta is expected to be finalized by the end of October, pictures and design files will be released afterwards.
The focus with all of this is making the components cheaper, with a focus on cooling systems, lighting and pumps. To get this done we will start with producing high end food computers for research institutions, and then we will use their feedback to scale up the systems for other applications.
I have generated a list of social aims for the business;
Improve nutrition with food research
Educate people and encourage small time farming
Reduce food waste by improving average food quality
Cheaper seed crops for farmers
Improved food security in drought areas
but the aim of the startup is to manufacture affordable indoor farming systems so I hope to partner with other organizations to achieve those aims.
@Webb.Peter I hope you’re well. The MVP looks great. Your aero setup looks good too. I’m keen to see the results of your nozzle tests.
I’ll be able to work on my aeroponics system once I’ve been allocated my manufacturing space.
