Cultivatd Inc, a startup based in Canada, is announcing it has begun operations and launched an indoor farming technology brokerage.
Co-founded by two industry-veterans, Cultivatd will represent over 40 different vertical farming and greenhouse growing technologies to better help people select which tools and tech are best suited for their project needs.
“We were seeing a lot of people come to us in the past, asking for solutions that required more than one technology, so we decided to launch Cultivatd to fill that gap in the marketplace” says Eric Bergeron, a serial entrepreneur who is now on his fourth AgTech startup (co-founder of Smart Greens, Modular Farms & ZipGrow). “We use our expertise as growers, manufacturers and consultants to make recommendations on the proper setup and agtech solutions.”
Added co-founder Eric Levesque, the former VP Business Development at ZipGrow Inc, “We work with manufacturers and technology providers to help sell their products to customers that are best suited to their needs. Our services are free to the end-user as we work on behalf of our partners”.
At current, Cultivatd works with several known AgTech partners including long-time industry companies such as ZipGrow, Cubic Farms, Moleaer, AutoGrow, Ceres Greenhouses, ATOM Controllers, Nelson & Pade Aquaponics, Growfilm, Iluminar, Hydrogreen, Modular Farms Australia, Intravision Group, GROV Tech and new technology providers such as GroStack, AmplifiedAg, Canobi Technologies, Auto Greenhouse, Just Vertical, Grobo, and EmersonGrow.
Cultivated is also announcing two new service offerings;
Farming As A Service and Cultivatd Consultants.
Farming As A Service (FAAS) is a program where Cultivatd will send a farm manager to operate your indoor farm, removing the difficulties in getting a farm up-and-running and eliminating the barrier-to-entry for most new farmers. The service is contract based and meant to get your farm to full operational efficiency with an experienced grower by your side. Once the team is trained and using the SOPs put in place, the farmer will move on or remain on as a consultant.
The Cultivatd Consultants service will be a brokerage of experienced master growers looking to share knowledge with indoor farm operators. Cultivatd currently has 6 consultants with expertise in cannabis, vertical farming, greenhouse production, operations and sales & marketing for vertical farming. “We are always looking to expand our network of consultants as demand for this service is already outweighing our ability to connect experts to projects in need of support.” added Levesque.
“We continue to add new partnerships every day and want to work with the world’s best agtech technology solutions so we can offer our clients a true, unbiased assessment of the right solution to solve their need” added Bergeron.
