Winner of last year’s AGTECH Breakthrough Award for Vertical Farming Solution of the Year, IGS secured £42 million Series B fundraising which they announced during their exhibit at COP26. David, CEO of IGS, is a serial entrepreneur and is passionate about tackling global challenges. As a trained chef who is married to another one, he cares a great deal about the food we eat.

The team at IGS have developed platforms that create ideal climates for plants and people. Their technology has been designed to provide access to safe and nutritious food which can be grown in-country, and they believe their innovative approach can overcome the most challenging growing conditions enabling food production all around the world.
