Kopf, who founded Agrilyst in 2015, was recognized for the software that helps indoor growers manage their crops with data.

January 2, 2019

Agrilyst founder and CEO Allison Kopf has been named to Forbes' 30 under 30 list. Kopf, 29, founded Agrilyst in 2015 and it currently has $3.3 million in funding. 

Agrilyst is a web-based software program that uses data to help indoor growers accurately manage their crops. Working with produce and cannabis growers, the software works by predicting what crops must be harvested in a 30-day period with 90 percent accuracy. 

In the February 2017 issue of Produce Grower, Kopf was profiled along with three other female entrepreneurs in the controlled environment agriculture (CEA) space. 

“The way that I approach it is that I’m there because I’m the person to do this,” Kopf told Produce Grower in 2017. “I presented the company that I had built because I was the right person to build this company. This [is] the thing I was put on this earth to solve. That’s the way I operate … I’ve made myself the expert in the thing I’m doing, and that’s the only [way] you can have confidence standing up there and presenting something that’s yours, in my opinion.”
