Join The [email protected] and the McMaster Biomedical Discovery and Commercialization program to hear Melissa Houghton, Co-Founder and CEO of iF client Lumago speak.

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 Houghton is the Co-Founder and CEO at Lumago where she is exploring ways to innovate the agriculture industry through alternative methods, entrepreneurship, and design. 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.
