Ever wanted to change the world but not know where to start? Hear what it takes to be an entrepreneur from Simone.


Ever wanted to change the world but not known where to start?

Meet Simone. Combining entrepreneurial flair and a fierce passion for sustainability, Simone started Vertical Patch – a vertical farming company that cuts off waste at the root (literally), only employing 2% of the water that traditional farming does.

Hear about her incredible story and insights, from traveling the world as an underwater presenter to the realities of running a startup, as she delivers to big corporate clients such as Five Guys.
