Irving Fain is the co-founder and CEO of Bowery, the modern farming company growing food for a better future by revolutionizing agriculture. Irving came up with the idea for Bowery after becoming obsessed with the question of how to provide fresh food more efficiently and sustainably to urban environments. Bowery’s large scale commercial indoor farms are the answer to this question, combining the benefits of the best local farms with advances made possible by technology to grow food for a better future. Since launching publicly in early 2017, Bowery has secured over $122.5M in funding, and expanded distribution of 8 product SKUs to retailers like Whole Foods, Foragers, Peapod, and various restaurants and fast-casuals in the Tristate area.
He was previously co-founder and CEO of CrowdTwist, a venture-backed company that provides loyalty marketing products. Prior to that, he ran product and marketing for iHeartMedia and began his career helping early stage companies raise capital as an investment banker at Citigroup.
