About this idea
I Designed several different types of Hydro Ag Solutions that could Disrupt the Vertical Farming Industry, and turn my Farm-2-Fork Microgreens Products Brand into the Next $8Billion$ Bagged Salad, Not just a Much Better & Cheaper Garnish with Unbelievable Margins🌱💰🤫
I’m planning on using my Hydro Ag Solutions to startup a Farm Pod Business Park, and a Light Manufacturing Company, that will Manufacture several different types of Hydro Ag Commercial & Homeowner Growing Systems & Farm Pods to start Marketing/Selling & Leasing out to MSU Ag Students and people wanting to startup their own Hydro Ag Food Production businesses.
I’m also building a Farm-2-Fork Microgreens Salad Bar Farm & Market Trailer that will be operated by STEM Forward MSU FARM Ag Students & Culinary Institute Students.
I’m also building a 25’ Step Van into a F2Fork Mobile Farmers Market to help the Farm Pod Business Park Farmers Deliver & Sell their Retail Sales Products in multiple locations and streams to Market .
We also plan on working closely with MSU FARM Manager to help us find STEM Forward Students that we can Hire , and properly train them on my Hydro Ag Systems, Ag Tools & Processes , and we plan on working with MSU FARM Manager to help us turn our Microgreens Brand into the next Bagged Salad , Value-Added & Freeze Dried Powdered Products Company operated by STEAM Forward Students.
I already attracted an Awesome Ag CPA Guy who will Vest into my startup, and help the MSU Ag Students & Residents apply for USDA FSA 1.25% Beginning Farmer Micro Loans to Lease our Full Service Turn Key Farm Pod Spaces, to startup their own Hydro Ag Retail & Commercial Sales Businesses.
I also attracted an Awesome Ag Grant Writer Guy who is willing to help research & acquire funding for our Hydro Ag Jobs & Ag Businesses Creating startup .
Muskegon Innovation Hub Team said they would help me apply for the BAF Business Accelerator Fund to help me prepare my Hydro Ag Solutions for Commercialization.
The Awesome GROW Team said that they would refer my startup for the Awesome Varnum Law MIspringboard Free Legal Services for Highly Scalable Businesses.
USDA even said that my Hydro Ag Solutions & Innovative Ideas could attract & win a lot of different Grants.

What I'll do with $5,000
We would use the 5x5night $5,000 Award for the matching portion of the $5,000 Small Retail startup Business Assistance Program that is offered in Muskegon to help out new businesses that want to Startup a Small Retail Sales Business in Muskegon. We would then use the total of $10,000 to Rent or help us Purchase a small Commercial Property in Muskegon to startup a Farm-2-Fork Living Microgreens Salad Bar Farm & Market Cafe in a stacked Shipping Container like pictured or Retail Space if we can’t find an affordable Lot to fit our startup needs.
