“Learn About Turning an Innovative Idea into a Business”
Time & Location
About the Event
Clint Bauer is a CEO and Co-Founder of a local tech company, Greenfield Robotics. Clint started Greenfield Robotics with a simple mission - to get the chemicals out of our food. Greenfield developed a new system of farming - known as carbon farming (or regenerative farming) - that leverages the power of nature to improve the productivity of soil and sequester greenhouse gases. Greenfield Robotics is developing robots that enable farmers to implement carbon farming on a massive, global scale - economically, and without agrichemicals.
Steve Castro-Miller has been a fixture in high-tech and the Kansas business community throughout his career. After various roles in IT leadership at Koch Industries, he became the President/CEO of Wichita-based Bold Software. He led this leading CRM software company through growth up to its acquisition by LogMein, the global IT software company. After the acquisition he continued to lead Product and Engineering for BoldChat and Rescue at Logmein for a number of more years to its merger with GetGo. Currently Steve is the Managing Director of Technology at INTRUST Bank. Steve has been an advisor for Greenfield Robotics and had recently invested in the company.
Clint and Steve will present about challenges of turning an idea into a business, and what to do to mitigate the risk. They will reflect on Greenfield Robotics, and how the company started out of an idea, and how it grew to the stage it’s currently in.
After the presentation we will have a Q/A session where Steve and Clint will answer any further questions by InventKansas members.
