Innovation Goes Further in Indiana | Ellie's Story

Ellie builds buzz for successful crops with The Bee Corp.

 

Before the almond trees bloom in California, some of the world’s largest almond growers depend on a business that’s making a buzz from 2,000 miles away. Ellie Symes and The Bee Corp use technology to help growers ensure a healthy yield through effective pollination.

 

 

“We’re applying technology to an industry that hasn’t typically had any technological innovation in the last century,” Ellie said. “It’s an essential service.”


 

A strong hive is essential for a successful harvest. That’s why The Bee Corp calls Indiana home. Though their business focuses on west-coast growers, they’ve chosen to keep their own hive in Indiana’s business-friendly community.

“It’s that Hoosier hospitality,” Ellie said. “People are willing to roll up their sleeves and help each other. It’s a differentiator for Indiana that we don’t see replicated in other areas. That’s essential when you’re starting a business.”

Innovators in Indiana are solving global problems through technological innovation. The Bee Corp’s infrared technology helps growers ensure a healthy hive every season. With over a third of the global food supply depending on pollination, this Indiana-grown business is providing an essential service to the global agriculture industry.
