My summer internship consisted of traveling to India to learn more about the agtech company, Blooom.
Blooom is an international company that provides a marketplace for producers and consumers of agricultural goods. The marketplace is accessible via smartphone and it provides small-holder farmers access to further down the supply chain, encouraging greater profits to a population that predominantly faces extreme poverty. During my time in India, I conducted research and presented a plan to the executives on potential company expansion into new markets.
