My guest today is Jack Morrison, CEO and cofounder at Scythe Robotics.

Scythe produces “state-of-the-art autonomous machines that handle the mowing while your team works hard to keep your properties looking their best.” As they say, “Smell Grass, Not Gas:

Leave the noise and gas fumes behind. With all-day battery life and high torque electric motors, Scythe gives you power without pollution.” 

Jack is a liberal arts-trained technical leader with a passion for fast code and connecting computers with the physical world. He was previously the Co-Founder and CTO of Replica Labs, which focused on 3D scanning and was acquired by Occipital.
