Cornell Engineering: "Student Startup Produces Tabletop Greenhouses"
We have recently been featured by Cornell’s Engineering Department in an article titled “Student startup produces tabletop greenhouses.” Read more about our journey at Cornell here:
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Cornell University for their continued support. We would not be here today if not for all of the resources Cornell had to offer. Just to name a few, as Cornell students we had free access to offices and meeting rooms, greenhouse space for botanical R&D, and prototyping labs with 3D printers and laser cutters. Cornell truly is a bubble in the real world.
But more so than the physical resources, it was the people that made the difference. For one, we had the chance to learn from brilliant engineering and agriculture professors -- shoutout to Prof. Callister and Prof. Sheppard from Engineerin, and Prof. Mattson from CALS. However, our technology and product is only half of the story. We would like to extend special thanks to Ken Rother and Felix Livtisnky, two of our earliest supports from Entrepreneurship at Cornell, whose mentorship leaves us feeling confident in our venture.
It’s been a long journey, and we won’t stop here! We will be beginning our next chapter in Boston very soon, so Stay Tuned for updates!
Meanwhile, take a look at how “Okavango” has evolved over the course of 2+ years of product development!
We started in a dorm room, and now we’re finally delivering fresh herbs in kitchens!
