The work that I needed to do needed to have a social mission, which is why we're a social enterprise. It's very easy and without any question, we need to have something that's going to directly give back in ways that the business can." "We're essentially a social enterprise that focuses on developing and commercializing nutrients and fiber products that are meant to use byproducts from the food production industry, as well as crop residues, to turn them into organic, renewable materials to replace mineral salts and horticultural substrates." "The biggest advantage has been for me of just removing any ego, any attachment, and I think that makes me a lot more lean. I lean into the team. I definitely create an environment where people feel like they're co-creating, they're contributing just as much as I in the sense of this is part of their vision as well."
