Agrilyst Founder Up For Vertical Farming Award

Allison Kopf at TechCrunch Disrupt NY.

Brooklyn’s own Allison Kopf is up for Changemaker of the Year for 2016 from the Association for Vertical Farming, a leading industry group.

It’s been quite a year for the young founder, who raised over $1 million in seed funding and headlined TechCrunch Disrupt New York 2016 after winning 2015’s San Francisco iteration. Her company, Agrilyst, makes data analytics software for farmers, with a focus on indoor farmers.

“Farms have a vast amount of production data, and, unfortunately, the information exists in fragmented, independent systems,” Kopf wrote this year. “As a result, growers are spending time and money creating optimization plans while still performing in a sub-optimal state. Farms are leaving revenue on the table. Our goal with the Agrilyst platform is to turn a burden for growers, data management, into their most useful tool.”
