Surna’s mission is to design efficient, reliable, and intelligent equipment for climate control for cannabis cultivation. Keen has vast knowledge of controlled environment agriculture, including serving as the chief cultivation expert for one of Colorado’s largest MMJ operations and being published in various industry magazines. He has served as president and CEO, and now as director of technology, of Surna Inc.
