My name is Vishal Singh. My company is Quantified Ag. We are a precision livestock data analytics company. So our company came from this need for cattle producers to identify sick animals early and being able to identify outliers in their herd. That's where the original concept came from. When we first started out we were kind of tackling it in a much different way. The initial idea was to do thermal imaging of cattle using drones, like the one behind me and then I actually started talking to cattle producers and learning more about what the specific problem was, how they were going about solving the problem right now, it just seemed to make sense that rather than going that route, there was a better way to go about it, which is what we do today and that is we make sensors that go on the animals and we're able to detect different types of characteristics that people would look for and some stuff that they can't easily measure and we provide all this information back to our cloud servers where we process all this data from individual animals and then what we're able to do is to a software interface, provide meaningful information back to the smartphones and computers of feedlot operators. So when I first started out, I was making these drones and it was really more out of personal interest, it was kind of more of like a hobby. I like doing that type of stuff and so I was making these drones. I was selling them to crop consultants and other universities for their crop research and then I was kind of going down this path of trying to do something bigger along the lines of the whole entrepreneurial, creating a business type of thing out of it and what I ended up doing was, I was already started down that path and one of my business mentors said, "Hey, you know, you're going down this path, maybe you should take a look at a start up accelerator program because that could help you just get to your goal faster, you can figure out things a lot quicker and you'll be surrounded by people that can help you think through this type of stuff" So I did. I applied to the start up accelerator called InMotion, which is here in Lincoln, Neb. and then when I got into it, the idea I got into it with was doing thermal imaging of cattle using drones trying to solve that problem of identifying sick animals, but then as I went through that process a big part of start up accelerator is before you build anything, they have you validate your ideas. By just talking to your end users or customers. I talked to a lot of cattle producers and it just, everything that they were telling me, the specific types of problems they were trying to solve and how they were trying to go about solving them and in this case of identifying sick animals, the symptoms they would look for it just made sense that I wouldn't be able to do all that using a drone that there was a better way of going about doing it and that's what led to the whole path of using ear tags on the cattle that had sensors on them. So as I've taken my company from a distant idea to an actual company that's making a product, it's been really important that I have mentors and the reason is because I'm just one person and I can't do everything and know everything and so it's really important to have people who I can talk to who either have expertise in areas that I don't or just people who I can trust and I can bounce ideas off of or get advice from that I know will give me good advice and I think it's important to do that even if you're not necessarily trying to make your own company. It's a good idea to have mentors in your life. Internships are really important because when I was a student in the same shoes as our interns going through my undergrad, I went to my internship and it went from doing just projects that were more or less class assignments to actually working on a real world problem, a real world project for a real world client and that's a really important gap to step over and make that connection because then the more of that type of experience you have, the more prepared you are to go out into the working world after you graduate.
