July 9 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Please note that July’s TCNewTech will take place on Tuesday, July 9 due to the National Cherry Festival in downtown Traverse City.
How It Works
Presenters take the stage with 5 minutes to present their new technology project or venture and 5 minutes to answer questions from the audience. Think Shark Tank, only with no actual celebrities making offers during the meeting—that’s for you to handle later!
Each presenter will be allowed 5-minutes to present and 5-minutes of question and answers (time limits are politely enforced). Between each presenter the audience is allowed to make brief announcements for things such as job openings, persons seeking employment, and other events happening in the area related to technology.
There is no charge to attend or to present.

SWRT Solutions, LLC (Facebook)
SWRT Solutions, LLC manufactures and deploys towed implements to install the SWRT membrane system, which radically improves grower yields on sandy soils while reducing costs of irrigation and nutrient amendments. Yield increases have ranged from 40% to 504% depending on cultivar, and have been tested in five states and three foreign countries. The SWRT Membrane system received a patent in April of 2017. The membrane system also sequesters up to 8 metric tons of carbon per acre on maize plants. It also dramatically reduces the conversion of fertilizers to methane and nitrous oxide by providing a completely aerobic environment, eliminating the anaerobic reactions that release these gases into the atmosphere.
