Founders: Veronica Head, Nick Kandas, and Chandler Petrovich

Aquaponos is the brainchild of three ASU engineering students, Veronica Head, Nick Kandas, and Chandler Petrovich. The three came together for ASU’s Engineering Projects in Community Service program and decided to focus on solutions in the sustainable agriculture field. The team recognized that there were existing barriers to entry preventing the widespread adoption of aquaponics systems. Building a DIY system requires deep knowledge and experience, and other pre-assembled kits on the market don’t actually produce much food.
