Rob Sanders and Colin Phillipson are Glas: a Launchpad team innovating in the agri-tech sector to help farmers drive greater productivity through data.

Glas was delighted to accept an invitation to speak at the AgriTech Innovation Showcase at the Royal Cornwall show ground on the 23rd of January. The event was hosted by David Rodda and Liz Gilbert from the Cornwall Development Company in aid of boosting the AgriTech sector here in Cornwall. People from various companies and disciplines presented ideas and upcoming innovations in agriculture and discussions were held around the future of the sector and how Cornwall is playing a leading role in driving this enterprising industry forward.

It was an exciting opportunity to present Glas’ product for the first time to a forward-looking audience and they received a very positive reception.

“Glas – well-presented and excellent use of pulling data together – excellent: Paul Miles Rogers, (independent business advice).”

Although there is still some way to go to deliver the full vision that was presented on the 23rd it is an exciting first step in the right direction. Moreover, the event offered excellent networking opportunities and potential future collaborations between major AgriTech industry players such as Rothamsted Research and Plymouth University.
