Revolutionizing Urban Food Systems | Azra Tanović

Revolutionizing Urban Food Systems

Azra Tanović
Co-founder & CEO, Rootically


Azra Tanović is a multi-disciplinary sustainability professional with a background in environmental & water resources engineering. She is a cofounder of Rootically and our Chief Executive Officer.


We’re revolutionizing urban food systems & empowering sustainability by challenging traditional notions of space use.

We believe that:

  • urbanization should include nature;
  • food production should include the end consumer; and
  • everyone is entitled to take control of the food they eat, the air they breathe and the life they live.

So we’ve created a fool-proof, at-home personalized vertical farming experience to bring nature to city-dwellers and ensure a new kind of urban lifestyle: where life grows on concrete & every meal is as “local” as it gets.
