The Sage Technologies, Corp. July 2015-Current Minneapolis, MN
As part of his exit from GenZ in June 2015, he purchased the “Gen-002” patent pending technology from his previous company to create a spin-off. The concept was to use this controlled atmospheric sprayer technology to advance his desire to bring organics to mainstream Agriculture. Since this date the patents have in fact been cleared to issue by the USPTO with all of the patent claims that he had hoped for. And after extensive testing the equipment is ready to launch.
Rich Incorporated The Sage Technologies Corp on July 30th, 2015.
Coming off from a successful startup of GenZ, Corp. a company that he founded; and a company that has begun to deliver on his promise to bring reductions to ag chemistry... There is much more to do if he is to impact the ag market as much as he origionally set out to accomplish.
