Glen Courtright, Our Son, Taking On a Big Problem

Not bad for a kid from Eastern High School. This is our son Glen. Taking on a big problem.

Bugs Save the World | Glen Courtright | TEDxFurmanU

To solve a food problem and a waste problem, engineer and entrepreneur Glen Courtright turned to Black Soldier flies. His company found a way to process consumer leftovers into food for animals that can then be used as sustainable food sources for an increasingly populous Earth.

Glen Courtright, founder of EnviroFlight, is passionate about solving big problems.  He spent much of his career connecting the dots, asking questions, trying innovative ideas in order to create new and better solutions. His career spans telematics, wireless telecommunications, renewable energy, automotive, aerospace, and a few things from his military days that he really can’t talk about.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
