"The most interesting people and the most interesting things in life have a ton of recipes."

Andrew Ference is many things, including someone who dislikes writing his own bios. At 37 years of age he still listens to the old punk rock of his youth and cannot bring himself to ditching his Doc Marten boots. An avid seeker of “King of The Mountain” segments on his numerous bicycles, he still finds time to be a Dad of two girls (Ava 10 & Stella 7) and a husband of another girl (Krista 38).

With strong emotions towards waste and inefficiencies, Andrew has studied Corporate Sustainability and Innovation at Harvard and is a partner at HarvestPort Capital, a venture capital fund aimed at supporting sustainable agricultural technology. Since there were a couple of spare hours in the week, Andrew also recently took a position with the Edmonton Economic Development Corporation helping to stoke the entrepreneurial spirit in his home city to further cement its ranking as best place in the world. Since he’s running out of allowable word count… Founder of November Project Canada, free fitness 3x a week, Horrible surfer who loves surfing, Has been ambassador of Lululemon, Sambazon Acái, Guayaki Maté, Boston Recycling, etc. And lots of games in the NHL and one Stanley Cup.
