GIGrow (Gravity Injection Growing System) is a Canadian company that has invented an indoor, vertical farming technology. The company’s founders and owners, Gilles and Guillaume Dumont, hope that Vermont will become home to multiple vertical farming operations that use their technology to grow food.

Come hear their vision of the future of growing crops using their technological innovation – a stainless steel rotary wheel. They will give a talk on their business, their invention(s), the emerging vertical farming marketplace, and how investors and innovators in Vermont might partner to use this indoor growing system here. They are hopeful there is a role for their company and their products in the United States.

This event is being held at Excelerate Essex, a co-working space now co-located with Earthlogic in Essex Junction . GI Grow was identified and cultivated by the Vermont-Quebec Enterprise Initiative of the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce, working with the Boston office of the Quebec Government. This gathering is co-sponsored by VQEI and Excelerate Essex.
