First it came for electric vehicle companies, and we did nothing. Then it started to swallow the commercial space industry, and we did nothing. Now there are hints of a new target – indoor farming companies. Will it be different this time? Probably not. In fact, it’s the same old story: An emerging technology sector with a handful of really well-funded startups that are burning through greenbacks and have yet to make a dime turn to special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) for a shortcut to the public markets and a bundle of free cash. Everyone lives happily ever after (assuming we’re not including retail investors).

Conversely, there’s also the allure of high-risk and high-reward potential with the latest gee-whiz technologies that seem too cool for school.
