Bacalia Group Selected to Join World Economic Forum (WEF) New Champion Community
We are proud to announce that Bacalia Group has been selected to join the World Economic Forum (WEF) prestigious New Champions Community.
WEF brings together business leaders from around the world, to collaborate and to provide insight on industries, economies, and global issues and since 1971 has been an engine for change.
The World Economic Forum (WEF) New Champions include 100+ dynamic high-growth companies, across 40 countries, that are applying new business models, emerging technologies, innovative approaches, and sustainable growth strategies which benefit society and are needed in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
The New Champions roster is full of global leaders pushing the envelope in their respective industries. Fellow company members pioneering new models and building ecosystems which transcend traditional industry boundaries are tech trailblazers and innovative companies such as Mozilla, Axtria, Codewise, Ankorgaz and BB Energy.
Since 2016, Bacalia Group’s subsidiary GrowthX Farms has been aligned with the World Economic Forum on the challenge of disrupting traditional agriculture by using less energy, creating less waste, improving food security and quality, and providing safe working conditions.
GrowthX Farms is making a difference in the Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) industry while partnering with local and foreign governments, and aims to create regional and global expansion into markets where it can maximize production in smaller space with its low-energy production system, while saving costs and continuously feeding people 365 days per year.
As a World Economic Forum New Champion, Bacalia Group has, in addition to innovating in the rapidly evolving AgTech landscape, consolidated its subsidiary Grand Caribbean Marinas among the top-5 marina groups in the US, while promoting responsible ecotourism and empowering local communities.
Bacalia Group is a dynamic privately-held holding company that has been investing in infrastructure and greentech for the past 10 years, pioneering and practicing environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and business governance.
