March 22nd 2021: Today, Cultivatd is announcing our collaboration with Contain Inc. which grants our clients access to indoor agriculture financing and leasing options.
Building and operating a substantial indoor agriculture operation requires key financial resources. Given that indoor farmers – those growing in warehouses, greenhouses and container farms – generally lack the financing options that are available to their outdoor farming counterparts, this has presented a challenge in the past.
Contain Inc., founded by Nicola Kerslake - an indoor agriculture and investment management veteran, is on a mission to create a financial ecosystem that supports indoor gardeners. From the smallest hoophouse to container farms, warehouse farms, and the most sophisticated greenhouses and plant factories, our collaboration with Contain Inc. offers a number of leasing, consulting, microlearning, and insurance solutions for indoor growers.
Added Kerslake “"We are excited to work with a group like Cultivatd that help people understand which technology best suits their needs - this is an important part of planning before financing and leasing should be considered"
Access to an extensive list of pre-qualifying indoor agriculture equipment vendors helps Contain speed up the application process.
In "cooperationship" with InterWest Insurance - a leading regional insurance broker, Contain brings indoor agriculture-specific insurance to indoor growers. The collaboration allows indoor growers in the United States to access quotes on a wide range of insurance, from basic workers’ compensation and liability insurance, to stock throughput and business auto insurance.
Our Shared Passion and Commitment
At Cultivatd and Contain Inc. we are all passionate about indoor agriculture. Our mutual commitment to our fast-growing industry is speeding-up indoor agriculture financing, and providing everything a client needs to continue thriving.
