The [email protected] – The Startup Story of Lumago
January 31, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Lumago is addressing the decreasing profitability of greenhouses by providing an alternative growing technology, aquaponics. This technology increases the value of the produce, the density at which it can be grown, and the profitability of greenhouses.

Melissa and her team are currently focusing on greenhouse technologies, with the plans to expand to urban farming and beyond as they progress. She is a Master’s Student at McMaster’s W.Booth School, Engineering Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and completed her Bachelor of Applied Science at the University of Waterloo.
