Flagstaff Business Incubator Helps ProGrowTech Solidify Position as National Leader in LED Horticulture Lighting
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 11, 2018--Poised for explosive growth in the national horticulture industry, ProGrowTech has refined its world-class LED lighting systems and successfully broken into the cannabis cultivation market. The Northern Arizona Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology (NACET) is now providing the company with critical resources to meet new business development goals.
Since moving operations this year to NACET, a 10,000-square-foot facility in the heart of Flagstaff, Ariz., ProGrowTech has grown substantially, securing contracts with large commercial horticulture operations nationwide.
NACET is a haven for startups and entrepreneurial companies like ProGrowTech, providing office space and resources like conference rooms, laboratories, audio and video production technology, and more to help companies grow, collaborate and connect with businesses in northern Arizona and beyond.
“The city of Flagstaff and NACET have given us incredible opportunities and connections that allowed us to ramp up our operations,” said Andrew Myers, co-founder and CEO of ProGrowTech. “Each day we’re surrounded by other forward-thinking entrepreneurs and have the best of Flagstaff’s business community at our fingertips.”
Commercial cannabis operations in Flagstaff and beyond have experienced substantial increases in crop yields and quality after switching to ProGrowTech’s LED lighting solutions.
