From the 3rd until the 8th of September 2018, Yanni and I represented PlantHive on TechCrunch Disrupt, which took place in the heart of Silicon Valley! The venue gathered more than 3.000 people and took place at the “Moscone West”, located in San Fransisco’s city center!
Taking PlantHive to SF was a wonderful experience! We had the opportunity to meet a lot of interesting people and awesome start-ups, but also spread to word about urban and vertical farming to the other side of the Atlantic. We traveled with a recently handcrafted prototype that we build especially for long-travel purposes! It made us seriously consider a wooden version of the PlantHive!
We wish to thank Eric G. and Galen from the Brussels Trade Office for their reception. They had booked several appointments to get us in touch with the SF ecosystem, and even organized a pitch sparring competition between Belgian and Japanese startups at “The Vault” co-working space.
We are looking forward to our next visit to California! Stay tuned on our page and blog for more Planthive news!
