National Science Foundation
The National Science Foundation (NSF) was created by Congress in 1950 “to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity and welfare; to secure the national defense; and for other purposes.”
NSF awarded SBIR Phase I grant funding to The Bee Corp to conduct the research project: "Data Analytics on Honeybee Hives Using IoT Sensor Data."
The Bee Corp was awarded Phase II grant funding to continue the Phase I project: "Infrared Image Analysis to Assess Beehive Health for Crop Pollination."
AgriNovus and its stakeholders work every day to make Indiana the home to unparalleled agbioscience talent and innovation. This means we care as much about our vision as we do execution. We also know it takes more than a single program or investment to accomplish this goal.
CEO Ellie Symes is a member of the AgriNovus Board of Directors.
Western Growers Association
Founded in 1926, Western Growers represents local and regional family farmers growing fresh produce in Arizona, California, Colorado and New Mexico. Our members and their workers provide over half the nation's fresh fruits, vegetables and tree nuts, including nearly half of America's fresh organic produce. Some members also farm throughout the U.S. and in other countries so people have year-round access to nutritious food. For generations our members have provided variety and healthy choices as the first line of defense against obesity and disease. We grow the best medicine in the world.®
The Bee Corp was awarded WGA's Wells Fargo Scholarship in November 2018.
