This week’s guest is Craig Hurlbert, co-founder and co-CEO of Local Bounti, an AgTech start up headquartered in Hamilton, Montana. The company’s ambitious mission is to scale production and distribution of high quality produce grown indoors, using 90% less water and land than traditional farming. Craig is a seasoned entrepreneur with deep experience in the energy sector and private equity. In our conversation, we delve into the agricultural challenges Local Bounti hopes to address, what being a special purpose acquisition company means, and the changing economies that effect how consumers get food to the table.
