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.”
