G2V Optics Company Overview

Problem

Climate change and population growth will leave 3 billion people without food by 2050. Food production and nutrition must improve by 70% while reducing water and land use.

Solution

We make "Engineered Sunlight" (TM): a combination of lighting and monitoring hardware with software control and data science. By linking desireable lighting and plant photobiology, we can greatly enhance crop yield and nutritional value.

Market

G2V continues to close sales to commercial horticulture operators (TAM USD 2.5B) and academic & industrial R&D (TAM USD 250M). The majority of customers have found us through our digital marketing and business development.

Business

We currently make money from direct sales of intelligent hardware/software systems. We are negotiating deals on "lighting-as-a-service" subscription model.
