Boulder, CO (13 June 2022) — David Schurman, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Perennial, has been accepted into the Forbes Technology Council, an invitation-only community for world-class CIOs, CTOs, and technology executives.

Schurman was vetted and selected by a review committee based on the depth and diversity of his experience. Criteria for acceptance include a track record of successfully impacting business growth metrics, as well as personal and professional achievements and honors. 

“We are honored to welcome David Schurman into the community,” said Scott Gerber, founder of Forbes Councils, the collective that includes Forbes Technology Council. “Our mission with Forbes Councils is to bring together proven leaders from every industry, creating a curated, social capital-driven network that helps every member grow professionally and make an even greater impact on the business world.”

At Perennial, we believe public outreach is critical to increasing the awareness and adoption of climate-smart agriculture. Unlocking agricultural soils as the world’s largest carbon sink—our vision at Perennial—will require widespread recognition of the importance of soil health, its impact on our climate, and novel technological approaches for verifying these factors. We look forward to David working with a professional editorial team to share his insights in original articles on, and to contribute to published Q&A panels alongside other experts. 

“I am honored and excited to be a part of the Forbes Technology Council,” said Schurman. “Climate change is the most pressing issue of my generation, and it’s a crucial time for climate technology to have a seat at the table.”
