Cody Miller of Rime Time Curiously Crafted Pops
Rime Time Curiously Crafted Pops was established with a passion for healthy and local food, a nostalgia for childhood treats, and a desire to collaborate with other food artists around Columbus. Today, we can be found with our ice pop carts around the city's biggest festivals and events. All our ice pops are made with the sweetest produce and best specialty ingredients that can be found to create one curiously crafted pop. From the very first conception until now, we will continue our passion of meticulously creating the most unique pops using the best imagination and ingredients we can find.
My vision for Rime Time is to become one of the premier treat providers in the city of Columbus and eventually Ohio. My personal mission is to create food and desserts that are a part of the events and moments that we make memories of; foods that remind us of something and have a lasting impression.
Te'Lario Watkins of Tiger Mushroom Farms
Tiger Mushroom Farms is a small local mushroom farm in Central Ohio. We cultivate shiitake & oyster (gray & yellow) mushrooms. Our business was started by our 11 yr old son when he was just 7 yrs old after his 1st Cub Scout project ended. He grew catgrass and basil and loved growing so much he wanted to grow more stuff. Then we wondered what we could grow in the winter, and he said mushrooms because mushrooms can grow in the dark. Te’Lario now has a growing business and is an entrepreneur, published author, and Hunger Hero for No Kid Hungry.
Our Mission is to provide fresh quality locally grown mushrooms and other mushroom products throughout the central Ohio region and beyond. Our Vision is to be one of the premier Mushroom producers in Central Ohio, providing mushrooms and mushroom products across the country.

Innovation is growing in the agriculture industry. The First Crop company is building a farming operation in the United States to bring opportunity to farmers, build environmentally sustainable practices, and return the miracle crop — hemp — back to American soil.
First Crop brought their message of creating a conscious company with heart to create Hemp farming, hemp brands, CBD oil, hemp fiber, and hemp food.
It was a pleasure meeting the incredible team of David Weir (CEO), Jane Pinto (Brand Development/PR Voice), Michael Bowman (Chief Pollinator and “Mr. Hemp”), and David Hill (Chief Quality Officer) during their visit to the EDGE Innovation Hub, Donatos Pizza, and the Grote Company.
