The Big Idea
“Beta Hatch is Washington’s only insect farm. We are one of the first farms in the country that is growing insects for animal feed and fertilizers. We are really trying to innovate in the agricultural space and we are doing that with insects.”

Why Fast Pitch?
“Agriculture and food are social businesses. It’s a huge way that people, economies, and the planet are impacted so I feel that this is a great fit for what we’re trying to do. I’d like to share a quote from my favorite agriculturalist: ‘In your lifetime, maybe a few times, you will need a doctor, a lawyer, a policeman. But every day, three times a day, every person on the planet needs a farmer.’ So the problems we are solving are everyday problems that have a huge impact globally. It’s something, I think, a good fit for what the mission of this competition is all about.”
