Jason Tatge serves as CEO. Jason has been a driving entrepreneurial force behind leading internet & Ag-Tech companies for over 15 years. His previous company, Farms Technology, created an electronic marketplace to automate grain transaction and risk management processes, offering automated hedging algorithms accessible via smartphones and tablets. Farms Technology was purchased by DuPont/Pioneer in December 2012.
Following the successful exit of Farms Technology, Jason became intensely focused on using IoT devices to passively collect data from farm equipment as farmers operate on their land. Half of U.S. farmers leave this valuable data locked in their machines. Farmobile was created to provide Farmers with real time access and ownership to their farming information.
Jason earned a degree in Financial Economics from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter MN and an MBA from The Fogelmen School at The University of Memphis. Jason served as the Pipeline Member President, and is actively involved with the Entrepreneurial community. Jason and his wife live in Bucyrus, KS and have two children.
