Welcome to another episode of Halo Drop, this one’s a real eclectic mix for you. We’ve got everything from vertical farming at home, to agricultural sensors, to the best startup Indian mattress companies. 
But first - what can you do to not be dependent on the supply chain? You can start by growing your own foods, in vertical farming. 
“Lettuce and basil are super easy to grow, I started growing tomatoes and have been growing them for two months… The tomatoes you grow at home are a lot more robust and different than what you get in the store. What's in a grocery store is genetically modified to be exactly what people want.”
Next, as we're moving and shifting into this always connected, always on world, how do you get all this data collected faster and easier? Sensors are the answer. And what is going to be the new use case for these things? One is agricultural tech. 
“There's this big push now towards agriculture. There's a bunch of companies that are trying to really figure out how do you sense how your farm or your produce is doing, so you can then further optimize it?”
Another is startups offering sleep solutions online. 
“The mattress industry was worth over $27 billion in 2017. And it's going to reach over $43 billion in 2024.”
