Join us for this special event where we will be chatting with Neil Amrhein, CEO of My Goat, a technology based mowing solution.
Neil will be sharing with us the history of My Goat, the technology behind it, and how utilizing My Goat will revolutionize your cemetery lawn care!
With a deep knowledge of labor challenges and technology advantages, Neil founded My Goat in 2018.
In his first entrepreneurial venture, Neil started a luxury non- medical home healthcare company, “All About Care”, that has employed nearly 4,800 Caregivers and provided over 1,000,000 hours of care for families across 2 states. Combining this experience with his previous 10 year career in technology, where he was responsible for revenue generating roles in hardware, software and professional services for customers ranging from start-ups to Fortune 100 institutions, the idea of My Goat was born.
My Goat is a software company that improves labor productivity, reduces cost and positively impacts the environment. It’s easiest described as “Roomba meets Netflix” for commercial lawn mowing. Specifically developed for commercial owners and managers, My Goat has thrived in the cemetery industry. My Goat is currently installed across 4 states, 11 cemeteries with 3 Goatopias(every acre of a property now grazed by a My Goat).
On a personal note, Neil Amrhein is a father to Olivia(14), Davis(13) and Sophie(11). He enjoys golf, tennis, and hiking. Neil serves his community and is active with the Rotary Club of Nashville, enjoys helping seniors as a board member of Fifty Forward, and is an active member of the Entrepreneur’s Organization(EO). He has participated in other business and non-profit organizations over the last 10 years.
Neil looks forward to the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead in re-engineering lawn care with My Goat.
