Eric McKee

American hemp veteran Eric McKee will share his experiences as an eco-entrepreneur at this year’s Hemp2020 Business Summit Oct. 19-20 at HempToday Center in Poland.

McKee’s company, Colorado-based Wnder LLC, specializes in hemp based solutions to combat global problems, and has worked in Haiti demonstrating hemp’s potential for humanitarian purposes at the Wynne Farm Nature Reserve. A U.S. Marine veteran, McKee later worked for major brands in the outdoor/ski sector where he discovered hemp’s disruptive potential in the plastics industry. He oversaw construction of the first fully permitted hempcrete structure in Denver, Colorado in 2017.
