Demo Day Companies:
  • Growcentia was founded by a team of three Colorado State University soil microbiologists that share a passion for enhancing soil health and promoting sustainable agriculture. Using innovative proprietary technology, this team developed an approach to identify and apply nature’s very best microbes to improve nutrient availability to plants. Growcentia's first product Mammoth P is helping thousands of growers around the country maximize the health of their soils or growth media to enhance plant health and yields, while minimizing the environmental impacts of agriculture.

  • Nexus Bioenergy offers a turnkey modular anaerobic digestion appliance for the agriculture, food and beverage industry. Our Bio1 process digests solid waste in a compact footprint with no waste water produced. Since there is no cost to dispose digester wastewater, the Bio1 systems have significantly lower operating costs compared to competition. Nexus offers zero-wastewater anaerobic digesters in formats for a full range of applications for organic waste processing.  Standard anaerobic digesters require lengthy on-site construction with significant project risk. Nexus’s turnkey design is delivered as a preassembled unit that is ready to produce biogas in just a few weeks.

  • Sahti develops a range of highly nutritious, delicious, and sustainable foods. We have two lines of food, one for humans and one for dogs. While this might seem strange, the fact is that the genomes of humans and dogs have evolved together for over 32,000 years!* As quoted by National Geographic, Ya-ping Zhang, a professor at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Kunming says “in addition to sharing genes that deal with diet and behavior, dogs and humans also share diseases, including obesity, obsessive-compulsive disorder, epilepsy, and some cancers including breast cancer.”
