Grove Labs
Gabe Blanchet is an MIT-trained engineer as well as Co-Founder and CEO of Grove Labs. After graduating high school at 17, Gabe took a gap year, designing and building a 1500mpg-equivalent electric car. Gabe then enrolled at MIT studying Mechanical Engineering where he worked on several research projects. Gabe took his sophomore year off to thru-hike the 2,182 mile Appalachian Trail then join startup GrabCAD as an early employee (GrabCAD later sold to Stratasys for $100M). After returning to MIT to finish his degree, Gabe founded startup Grove Labs (www.grovelabs.io) with Jamie Byron, his best friend and roommate, to build products that enable everybody to grow fresh food right in their home. Grove Labs is off to a roaring start - Gabe has raised over $2M from globally-known investors like Upfront Ventures, Tim Ferriss, and Gary Vaynerchuk as well as recruited team of 14 top engineers, horticulturalists, designers, and marketers from around the world. Gabe now leads the team at Grove Labs iterating quickly on their in-home growing prototypes and introducing almost 100 Boston-area Early Adopters to the concept of harnessing ecosystem design (ecoponics) to pioneer an age of kitchen-to-table fresh food production.
