Hear from Hunter on his experience and the process of developing an automated robotic startup to assist in fruit harvesting.
Founded with the goal of changing an industry that has been left behind by technological innovation, Hunter Jay saw a gap that he was able to fill through Ripe Robotics.
Every year many farmers struggle to find and manage people to pick the fruit from their orchids, especially so in the current economy. This results in large levels of waster and lost profit for the farmers.
We will talk to Hunter about his experiences in the industry, how the idea of ‘Eve’ (their prototype) was developed, how he has faced barriers and challenges within the startup phase, tips around raising funding and the next steps of growth.
