Nancy Shemwell is one of 24 honorees for this year’s Women in Technology Awards. The honorees were honored at a virtual event on May 18. Click here for more information on this year’s honorees. 

Nancy Shemwell, chief operating officer at Trilogy Networks, says that without further advances in technology, the world’s growing population will likely see food shortages by 2050, and much of the world is looking to the U.S. to expand the global food supply.

Now, she is leading that is already having real-world impacts on the future of agriculture that has the potential to change several facets of rural life. 

“I’m attracted to areas of the business where technology evolution is happening, but at the same time that the market is ready for or about ready to deploy,” Shemwell said.

Shemwell joined Colorado-based Trilogy in mid-2020 after working in C-suit positions at several local startups, including Virclave, DataSpan and Multi-Link. In her new role, she has been instrumental in leading the 10-person team launch of the Rural Cloud Initiative.

The RCI is a coalition of 65 network providers and EDGE technology innovators the company put together – the latter is where Trilogy’s focus lies – which aims to create the “farm of the future” through IoT services provided on private networks.

The first phase of the initiative’s proof of concept wrapped up this year at a farm operation close to the Missouri-Iowa border. With other members of the RCI coming together to deploy many precision agriculture technologies via the network, they were able to increase efficiency and profits by 10 percent by providing real-time data on things like temperature and humidity and alerting the farm when issues arose.
