Sustainable indoor farming company, LettUs Grow, has been crowned national winner of one of Shell’s Enterprise Development awards, announced at Shell’s Energy Summit in London. Co-founder and Managing Director of LettUs Grow, Charlie Guy, has been awarded the Shell LiveWIRE Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award, receiving a total of £30,000 to help scale the indoor farming company.
LettUs Grow has developed aeroponic indoor farming technology that can grow crops without sunlight or soil while reducing water and fertiliser use in the process. Their systems don’t need pesticides or herbicides and can reduce the environmental impact of delivering food from farm to fork, by siting farms in rural and urban locations.
Charlie Guy, Co-founder and Managing Director of LettUs Grow, had this to say about the win: “I am truly honoured to have won amongst such an impressive group of finalists. Making it through the competitive process for the national competition is fantastic validation for the potential impact of our technology. It’s a testament to the amazing work from our whole team over the past three years, to bring our unique indoor growing products to market. We’re looking forward to working with the best growers from around the world, to realise the full impact of our technology over the coming years!"
