Brooklyn’s own Allison Kopf is up for Changemaker of the Year for 2016 from the Association for Vertical Farming, a leading industry group.

It’s been quite a year for the young founder, who raised over $1 million in seed funding and headlined TechCrunch Disrupt New York 2016 after winning 2015’s San Francisco iteration. Her company, Agrilyst, makes data analytics software for farmers, with a focus on indoor farmers.

“Farms have a vast amount of production data, and, unfortunately, the information exists in fragmented, independent systems,” Kopf wrote this year. “As a result, growers are spending time and money creating optimization plans while still performing in a sub-optimal state. Farms are leaving revenue on the table. Our goal with the Agrilyst platform is to turn a burden for growers, data management, into their most useful tool.”
