Ralph Becker, Urban Greens
Dominik Feiden is the Co-founder and CEO of Organifarms. He is studying Sociology, Politics, and Economics at the Zeppelin University Friedrichshafen. With his motivation of contributing to a sustainable future, he started developing solutions for sustainable agriculture. As Vertical Farming provides many solutions for the problems agricultural practices are facing due to the excessive use of resources, climate change, and population growth, he asked himself: what is holding it back? Vertical farming holds high potentials but also needs to be profitable to sustain itself in the current food system. Organifarms is therefore developing automation technology for vertical farming, to make it more profitable and scalable. Together we want to shape the agricultural future of our planet
