The Mile High Innovation Network will be meeting Thursday, April 19 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Thornton Building 2nd Floor Conference Room. This month's guest speaker will be James Rolin of Cowboy Cricket Farms.
Cowboy Cricket Farms LLC. is an emerging industry leader in the entomophagy (edible insects) market in America and is Montana's first and only edible insect farm. Cowboy Cricket Farms, based out of Belgrade, provides a sustainable alternative to many other animal products at a fraction of the environmental cost and in a way that can be grown to benefit the expanding population. Recently, the company declared their first initial public offering to raise $750,000 for operation expansion. James will be speaking about the journey of their family's home-grown business and their goals for the future. Who knows, there may be some Chocolate Chirp Cookies available to try for those who attend!
