Built UP from the past,
for the future
Our VISION is to celebrate the passion, people, and technologies that solve global grand challenges across Food, Health, and Agriculture.
Our MISSION is to accelerate solutions that sustain and nourish individuals, communities, and the earth in an equitable way.
In 2005, founders Terry and Warren converged on the prairies of Western Canada and discovered an incredibly effective working style to solve common problems with technology solutions in a simple way. They took these solutions to farms across North America through the AGRI-TREND network. This network instilled a culture of sharing what you know, and watching it grow. In 2015, AGRI-TREND was acquired by Trimble, and Terry and Warren continued to pursue opportunities helping Agriculture around the world.
During the last 5 years Terry and Warren have started to place a greater emphasis in their lives on health and wellness, and one of the main ingredients to these areas, good food. Raising a pretty large tribe of kids as proud fathers, the realization that their farming roots have a tremendous role to play in the future has helped motivate them towards the vision of Convergence.
Artificial intelligence, digital sensors, robotic automation, and niche ingredient production are examples of the the types of business technologies Convergence is currently working on across Health, Food, and Agriculture. Starting NOW lets converge ideas and technologies together so tomorrow when we are sitting collectively around our tables, we are truly "Growing Healthy Lives".
OUR CORE VALUES
We believe in a community culture, with the willingness to un-learn and re-learn.
We believe in having an abundant mindset to share what you know for a reason.
We believe in real people, real problems, and real solutions - all the time.
