Indoor agriculture fintech specialist Contain Inc. launches two new white papers to kick off 2023, "2022 in Review" and "Indoor Ag in the Stock Market." "Amidst the optimism and overall upward growth of the industry, at Contain, we have been tracking the companies listed through our indoor ag stock market index, and since the initial surge of listings, they have consistently underperformed the broader market index."
The "Indoor Ag in the Stock Market" white paper dives deeper into the rapid rise and leveling of the industry's stocks, analyzing and discussing how industry players are contending with investments, weighing private vs. public, and how each has paid off.
The "2022 in Review" white paper looks at the landscape of the industry, analyzes the $1bn invested in 2022, and identifies 2023 trends from looking at data and hearing from industry insiders. 2022 brought to the forefront some difficult hurdles while also shining a light on opportunities and areas for growth and expansion within the industry.
"Heading into what appears to point to a recession in 2023, having a clear value proposition that the market identifies with is key to continuing to grow during a period of economic downturn. The market continues to see the value of turnkey solutions and is looking for a subject market expert that can provide a single point of contact for their growing needs," FSG shared.
The Verde Compacto team shared that, "Education preparation for the industry right now is a big thing, so we can help people that are interested in learning more about how to plan a successful project, how to execute it, and what are the key ingredients needed for the project to be successful. However, overall, in the industry, the only way to make this long-term vision happen is through collaboration."
Contain vendors FSG and Verde Compacto are interviewed and featured in the white paper, sharing how the industry is transforming, growing, and being challenged and, in addition, how they are adapting to the climate for continued success and growth in 2023 and going forward.
Both white papers are available on Contain's site within their data dashboard, which also features a public stock index and a measure of the industry's newsworthiness.
