Naithan “Nait” Jones created the AgLocal web and mobile platform in late 2011. His dream: to match independent and family meat farms to the wholesale and retail buyers who want to buy their meat directly. Because he is from a family of chefs and farmers, he understands the trials of raising and cooking delicious food. Making life and business easier for chefs and farmers inspire him daily to get AgLocal running. Nait’s professional career is in enterprise technology and technology start-ups, and he’s had successful stints at Sprint Corporate, Gartner Research and the well- regarded Kauffman Foundation.
