how we got here
20+ YEARS DEVELOPING ONLINE COMMUNITIES FOR COMMERCE AND SHARED BUSINESS SERVICES
FarmLogix was founded by Linda Mallers. Linda has been working in technology and the internet since 1995, when she launched a product used by futures traders to market themselves electronically to fund managers. The concept of electronic access to a suite of shared marketing products was a novel use of technology at that time. Linda next brought her online expertise to the fitness industry with RaceLogix, an online community for triathletes, which also included shared business services and e-commerce for personal trainers.
In 2012 Linda launched FarmLogix, utilizing time-tested technology to bring farms and commercial end users closer together through online aggregation, full process transparency/reporting, and distribution. She has also developed mobile apps, social media, websites, online marketing, traditional print materials, CRM, and conducted cloud/systems analysis within the food industry. She has an undergraduate degree from UW-Madison and did her graduate work in Computer Science at the University of Chicago.
