A strong Board of Directors is of great importance in any company’s growth and success. It is with great pleasure we announce that we have secured Anita Krohn Traaseth as a new member of the Board of Directors. We think she is one of the best Board members we could wish for, with more than twenty years of experience as a leader in both private and the public sector. She has demonstrated a great passion for agriculture and technology, both as former CEO of Hewlett-Packard Norway and Innovation Norway, and also as a leader of the Ministry of Agriculture’ growth initiative for the green sector in Norway towards 2035. Her competence will make our already strong board even better. Anita Krohn Traaseth; you are most welcome!
This is Anita’s comment: – Agricultural technology or agrotechnology is a key growth area. A number of global trends are influencing food security, poverty, and the overall sustainability of food and agricultural systems. The report Agriculture 4.0 – The Future Of Farming Technology, states that by 2050 we will need to produce 70 percent more food. The EU and investors like Bill Gates are increasing their focus and efforts in this area, so are several Norwegian investor communities. SoilSteam has already been identified as the Top 500 Foodtech Solutions in the world 2020. They have big ambitions, a lot of work ahead of them and with headquarters in my childhood town, well, then I could not help but say YES to join the team! The Soilsteam journey continues 🙂
