Christine Su

CEO and Co-Founder


Nominated by Ashley Boren


Christine Su is CEO and co-founder of PastureMap, a technology company that is changing how grasslands are managed—in a way that benefits ranchers, grasslands and the world.  Grasslands cover one-quarter of all land and store one-third of the global carbon stocks. PastureMap’s mobile and web cloud platform brings precision agriculture to ranching, helping the industry make money, raise better beef, and maintain and improve healthy grasslands.  Christine holds three degrees from Stanford, including an MS in land use and agriculture and an MBA. Christine thrives as a young, Asian woman entrepreneur in the male-dominated Silicon Valley, and is able to successfully connect with the ranching community despite lacking a personal background in the industry.
