About this event

Our guest, Chad Sykes, is the Founder & CINO (Innovation Officer) of the Indoor Harvest Corp., a business in transition. Their business model previously had an agriculture-wide scope and is in the process of pivoting to narrow their focus on the emerging and incredibly profitable Cannabis Industry nationwide.

As a company that provides and supplies vertical farming solutions and builds integrated agriculture systems, they are well positioned with Chad’s latest innovations. He has designed and developed Indoor Harvest’s modular aeroponic system and has been responsible for all research and development since its inception.
