Minnesota Agtech startup Conservis reaped more money last month when they secured $9.5m in debt financing from existing investors.
We connected with Black to hear more about what’s in store for the state’s most prominent agtech venture.
What were you doing prior to Conservis?
I retired in the fall of 2015 and that lasted for about 8 months when I realized that I wasn’t done yet. I received a call from a headhunter about this time last year to assist the founders to operationalize and scale the company. I joined as the CEO in October of 2016.
What about Conservis compelled you to get involved as the leader?
