    Sounds like I missed a great meeting. Really wanted learn more about Agtech, as I am one of the founders of the startup Vitae America.
    Phase II of our startup business involves the construction of our Campus/Warehouse in Melville NY. The top of our campus has 6.5acres vertical farming and solar/wind components.
