Rob Imbeault is the Co-Founder of Adapt.Ag that is building the largest mushroom-focused vertical farming network in the world and COO of Forage Hyperfoods, a Canadian mushroom-based wellness product company. He is a mental health advocate and in addition to his career, Rob is the author of 2 books, the first of which is a critically acclaimed bestseller (Before I Leave You), and the second was evidently read by only his friends (I Can’t Believe How Well It’s Going).
Having founded or co-founded startups since 2003, including 10Count Consulting and the unicorn, Assent, I am now a co-founder of two vertical farm companies Adapt Agritech and Farm Anywhere. As an investor, I focus on founders, product market fit, and performance in that order.
Although vertical farming has already made leaps and bounds, the industry is still in adolescence. It’s like the early days of the internet which is incredibly exciting. My vision is to build, distribute, and optimize containerized vertical farms.
Employing a “real-world MBA” to advance the solutions to real-world problems. My mission is to advance access to sustainably grown food.
To build the largest solar-powered vertical farm network in the world leveraging existing and building new technologies. And to be a part of advancing innovation in vertical farming, container farming, sustainably grown food, and food availability globally.
My first book, Before I Leave You, is critically-acclaimed and an Amazon Bestseller. To keep my ego in check, my second book, shown below, was neither of those things but my friends really liked it. As for Before I Leave You, what started as a suicide note- originally meant as a goodbye letter I wrote turned into a book, an apology, therapy, and a healing tool to turn things around.
Before I Leave You is a redemption story, an introduction to repressed memory and childhood trauma, a harsh reality of the darker side of Las Vegas- and a reality check of how addicts manage to hide their struggle, their troubles, and their illness from colleagues, family, and friends.
