Where to start? Viroment is helping stakeholders at every step of the farming process. Its technology provides cleaner, lower-stress environments for animals; it keeps the air smelling fresh for the surrounding community; it creates permanent jobs; it turns a cost center into a revenue stream for the farmers; it turns harmful waste into clean water and valuable fertilizer; and it allows the farms to produce more and higher quality meat for consumers around the world.
The applications for the technology extend far beyond farming, too. Despite living on a planet that's covered mostly by water, less than 1% of that water is drinkable. Viroment can help solve that problem with its technology. It's already proven its viability by rushing to help the city of Houston, Texas after Hurricane Harvey ripped through and flooded nearly everything. Thanks to Viroment, all the sludge that washed in was turned into clean water and solid waste that could more easily be removed. That's a big reason governments in countries like China are very interested in Viroment.

I'm also a firm believer that the right team can accomplish almost anything. And the team at Viroment is that kind of team. The founder, Paul, spent his career helping low-income families achieve their dreams. The kids who grew up in communities Paul helped to create have gone on to earn college degrees and even play professional sports - something they likely could not have accomplished had they not had a good place to live as children. Paul sees that it's possible to help the community around you and make a profit at the same time. That's something we need more of in C-Suites.
