Common Grounds – Coffee + Connections + Storytelling

Today’s Story – Scott Massey co-founder Hydrogrow, LLC

Hydro Grow provides consumers with the Gropod, an aeroponic appliance the size of a dishwasher that uses machine learning to grow a head of leafy greens on a daily basis with 95% less water and no pesticides. Hydro Grow​ ​has​ ​three​ ​(3)​ ​distinct​ ​competitive​ ​advantages:​ ​a​ ​revolutionary​ ​design protected by a mechanical utility PCT patent,​ ​food​ ​safety,​ ​and​ ​a​ ​recurring revenue​ ​model of subscription based seed pods similar to keurig k-cups.​ The Gropod will establish a new precedent for food quality by eliminating food waste, and a user’s dependence on grocery stores for most produce.

Common Grounds is a weekly event focused on bringing innovative people together for a superb cup of local coffee and a 5 minute story about some of the great innovation, entrepreneurship or simply cool things happening in our community.

Our goal is for you to leave Common Grounds excited by the people you just met and anxious to repeat the story you just heard.

Event Format:

7:30 a.m. – Door Open, get your cup of Evansville Coffee Company coffee

8:00 a.m. – 5 minute or less story highlighting something innovative, entrepreneurial or simply positive happening in our community.

8:30 a.m. – Party’s over – but we won’t kick you out.

You are welcome to come and go at any time
