Through its connections at Agtech X, Ponix applied to the IoT.ATL AgTech Challenge late last year. We were thrilled to receive news that we were selected as one of the program’s 6 winners early this year. Sponsored by Invest Atlanta and other local government agencies, IoT.ATL conducted a nationwide search for sustainable technology that can help bring food resilience and access to the city of Atlanta. The program itself has garnered a lot of attention and positive press for its support of sustainability and technological innovation, which represents a huge opportunity for Ponix to show what it can do in front of a national audience.
To capitalize on this opportunity, Ponix will be installing and operating a 40’ hydroponic container farm a tomato’s throw from the Atlanta Beltline for the next year. We will be working closely with local businesses and the local government, developing both new relationships as well as existing ones from our time at Comfort Farms in 2017.
Ponix is proud to take this stage and will be officially up and running by the end of May.
