Message from the CEO - Norm Couturier

Hi, and welcome to the first issue of the Terris Talk! This is our monthly wrap-up of interesting things happening in our world and in the earth observation world around us.

This is an exciting time for us as a technology company, building an innovative cloud software platform in earth observation - we get to work with the leading satellite imaging companies on the planet, who are making incredible strides in helping us all view the earth more quickly and at a higher quality than ever imagined. We're developing AI-based solutions to help solve some of the big challenges that our customers face when analyzing their areas of interest on the ground, or in the water.

July became a great month to launch this newsletter, as we had some great news to share – we brought on some quality investors who share in our vision, and we obtained our B Corp certification, which articulates our core operating values as an organization that is building with purpose.

Summer is here in Atlantic Canada, we're getting to see family and friends in person more often – life is good. Enjoy the read and your summer also!
