This post is meant to capture a moment in time. Today. Our launch party. How did we get here, what have we built, where are we going?
Austin has been caught between the hard science of numbers and the soft science of human decision making for his entire career. It started early with math team, moved to a degree in Sociology, and ended up here at Conserv empowering conservation professionals to do more with data.
Nathan has always been fascinated by history, and especially by the artifacts that mark milestones in our past. He grew up in Michigan, close to Detroit, the eldest child in a family that was closely connected to the auto industry.
Conservation professionals are quiet heroes. Every day, all over the world, millions of conservation professionals spend their days taking care of art and cultural collections. Many of these people have the title conservator, most don't. It's a diverse group in terms of background, experience, title, and skill level.
Sustainability matters. Conserv is on a mission to help preserve our shared cultural heritage for future generations. Part of that mission involves creating a sustainable business model where we can serve our customers well and profitably while also limiting our environmental impact. A business model with sensor hardware has the potential to create a negative environmental impact, and we have some ideas on how to overcome the challenge.
