Chad Fischl, Age 36, Chief Executive Officer, Director. During his last year of University, in 2007, Chad started his first company, Shutout Solutions Inc., now called YXE Labs. YXE Labs was originally in the business of importing from South Korea, with exclusivity in North America, Nano Silver products used in the application of deodorizing sports gear. Mr. Fischl was the Co-CEO of YXE Labs and was an integral part of the growth of the business with retailers and professional sports teams across North America, earning endorsements from many of those teams. Mr. Fischl helped grow YXE Labs from having three products in 2007 through to, in 2017, having over 25 various products in four different markets and with internal intellectual property surrounding many of these products. In 2017, Chad resigned from his position with YXE Labs in order to pursue his new ventures through FarmBoys Design Corps. (“FarmBoys”) and, in 2017, Chad started a new venture with a group of partners from various backgrounds in engineering, oil & gas, biology and sales and marketing to form FarmBoys. As the CEO and President of FarmBoys Chad has worked tirelessly with his diverse team to design the world’s most productive modular aeroponic farming units that come fully equipped with proprietary monitoring and automation to make growing aeroponically simple and predictable with very little human intervention. Due to Mr. Fischl’s extensive experience with start-up companies, both in growing those companies and in working together with a diverse team to achieve a goal, we believe that Mr. Fischl, acting as our Chief Executive Officer and a Director of our Company, will be instrumental in helping the Company to execute on its plans for growth.
