How We Got Our Start
Meet the Team
Ryan Agrey / Co-Founder
I was born and raised in Alberta, Canada and always loved building and designing things. I have always been good at it to. At only 13 I won a K'NEX Building Contest for North America. As I neared graduation, like most kids my age, I had no idea what I wanted to do. All I knew was I wanted to create cool things to better people's lives, but there was not a booth at a job fair for that. I talked to engineers and although they design, they rarely had the freedom to build whatever they wanted. I figured this was the reality of "Growing up". I decided to just find a good paying job but the fire to create never burnt out. Through reading books, podcast and hearing online stories I realized it was still very possible to create cool things to better people's lives. I just needed a great idea. That idea finally came to me in October 2015. That was the start of Hope Innovations and since then I have devoted all my money and time to keep making it a reality.
Tessa Agrey / Co-Founder
I am the amazing sister of Ryan and the beautiful daughter of Brad. I was born and raised in Alberta, Canada. I knew I wanted bigger and better things than what my small town had to offer. After graduation I pursued a career in Environmental Science and obtained a degree in it. I then went on to participate in a few international research projects. Where we studied different farming practices, organic farming techniques and the positive and negative effects different certification bodies have. Through all these experiences, I found the importance of being better connected with your food and helping each other. That is what drove me to help develop Hope Innovations.
Brad Agrey / Co-Founder
I was born in a small Saskatchewan town and grew up on a small farm. As a young farm kid I have always loved seeding, harvest and all everything it brought. We worked hard for just a little and always had a garden growing. It seemed to have so much weeds that needed to always be picked, I HATED picking weeds, maybe this is why I like hydroponics so much. In my mid twenties I moved to Alberta for work and found my lovely wife. Together we raised 4 beautiful children whom I'm very proud of. Two of which are part of our family orientated company, Hope Innovations. I've always thought is would be great to work with my kids and now I have the chance to. It has been a long road to get to where we are today, from launching to our kickstarter to becoming the amazing business we are today.
